dirty b****

I sat down to have a writing conference with one of my lovely little ones. She was very engaged in her story- which seemed to be all on one topic. She was using word-wall words and was working hard at recording the sounds she hears in the words. All of these are things we want her to be doing when she writes. I was thrilled to see so much great work.

"Wow" I said, "Look at all the great sounds you've heard in your writing today! Tell me what you're writing about!"

"My dirty b****" she shouted. "See? This is my dirty b****. We're dancing. But then my dirty b**** turns off the music and I say, "HUH? Dirty B****"

I glance around, hoping none of the other children are overhearing this.

"What?" I ask again, because she does have a tremendous amount of difficulty with her speech.

"YOU KNOW" she said, exasperated that she'd have to explain this to me, "A dirty b****" and pointed to her picture of a jelly fish.

jelly fish.

so, so much better than dirty b****
