KID TALK

It has always been extremely important to me that the children in my classes really understand the songs they are singing. I stop and explain all the words that I think may not be known to them or be understood by them.

Today, I was explaining the difference between 2 words: shy and bold. They all knew what 'shy' meant and could quickly tell me who in the class was 'shy'. Then, I asked if anyone knew what 'bold' meant. Quickly, a sharp young fella raised his hand, and proudly said..."It means you don't have any hair!"

I didn't have the heart to tell him that he was wrong, so I just 'confessed' that I had mispronounced the word!
