Thoughts for Thursday #10

If I can get my kids to truly understand and embrace this, I will have succeeded as their teacher.

"Pronoun Pookie"

I was teaching my kids about pronouns the other day. I used a made-up character, "Pronoun Patty," to make it interesting. 

Student: WHO is Patty? That's a weird name

Me: I don't know. She's just a character...and don't say that. Someone might have an aunt or cousin named Patty 

Student: **looks around the room***....Well, I don't know anybody named Patty. We should just call this lady Pronoun....umm...Pronoun Pookie! I know somebody named Pookie!

This is why I teach.
