Tales from 1st grade: Guess that word...continued

The day after I posted "guess that word" I had my students write a page for a class book. Our character word this week is "Thankfulness" and it's November. So, they were to complete the sentence, "I am thankful for....".

Well, imagine how hard it was for me to hold it together as I read this story over a students shoulder. I've learned not to jump to conclusions and ask the student to read their story to me.

This is the interpretation:
"I am thankful for this Earth and my parents and this school and all of my family."

So I used some "magic tape" (white out tape) to fix this innocent little blunder without the student even noticing. Now the class book is rated G!
