Let’s go to the other extreme, from the most talkative to the quietest.
The greatest challenge for me as a teacher is to keep this boy settled. He is harder to pin down than Pio.
He rides his bikes instead of writing his journal. He asks for breaks every 5 minutes. He gets distracted with every alarm (doorbell, baby crying through the monitor, oven, washing machine, phone ringing,etc).
I don’t know how to gauge how much he is learning. He is tinkering something while I’m reading all of them a book. He reads Garfield comics instead of Charlotte’s Web. He jumps with Anton at the trampoline instead of doing his handwriting.
Then he showed me his mini-books.
I read it and I almost jumped out of joy.
It goes like this…
Moments like this make me feel absolutely rewarded as a mother and a teacher.
He is after all learning something in his own way.
Luis, I love you no matter what. I know you feel the same way about your Mom.
