Yesterday during Friday Lunch Club (when a group of my 4th grade students gets to eat lunch with me) I was having a conversation with my kids about knitting. I have been teaching a fellow teacher how to knit, and she walked in. I asked her how it was going, and whether she still . One of the boys picked up on this, and said, "You know, Ms. D, Kelley is a genius." I was really taken aback by his pronouncement -- and then he went on to say, "Everybody always has something of hers. She's always sharing." I think he meant to say generous, but I'll take either one of them. It's amazing how much kids recognize from the world around them. And flattering -- I'd never use either of those two adjectives to describe myself....
