I looked up from my small group of students transitioning to the next literacy center. Walking toward me was one of my adorable, often "serious about his work" boys, beaming with pride as he came to show me his paper. My intern, Miss H. provided the context, " **** wanted to show you how he spelled "exciting" all by himself!" His paper was about first grade and he bravely attempted the word, "exsiding". For those not familiar with kindergarten writing, his spelling: perfect!! I smiled, told him to "wait just a moment" while I ran to grab my camera and capture his pride. I'm not sure whose smile was actually bigger, his or mine! I will miss kindergarten.
