Teachable Moment #497


Student–“Ms M.–how’s this?”  
(holds up what appears to be a pencil outline of California)
Me: “Looks good!” (gives thumbs up sign) 
…a few minutes pass…
Student: “Ms. M–how’s this?
(holds what appears to be same pencil outline of California)
Me: “Looks good! Is there anything on there you are showing me?”
Student: “Nope!”
…a few minutes pass…
Student: “Ms M.!”
(holds up what appears to be the same pencil outline of California)
Me: “It’s nice, D.  I have a question, though.  It seems that you have shown me the same pencil outline of CA three times now.  Is that what it is?”
Student:  “Um Yes.”
Me: “Well then, how about if we don’t do that anymore?”
D: “Okay!”  (all smiles and happy)
