I can't tell you how incredibly grateful I am that my own children have such amazing teachers. This quote from son after school today is a tiny bit of evidence.
Me: Donavon, how was your day?
Donavon: Good, except for one part. Jack (name change) lost his tooth right in the middle of reader's workshop!
Me: Well, that's exciting! Nothin' bad about that.
Donavon: Yes, there is! We were trying to build stamina.
Donavon is 5. He is in Kindergarten. And I'm sitting here cryin' happy tears. My 5 year old is excited about building stamina in reader's workshop!!!! We are truly blessed and super grateful. Thank you, Mrs. R!!!!!
