we're saving lives here, people

Yesterday as we switched guided reading groups I asked one of my readers to move a little faster since he was keeping the group from starting their new book. One of the group members nodded gravely, "That's right" she agreed, "Our reading time is very important. Reading saves lives."

And with that the slow poke sped up and we were able to get back to our life-saving measures of learning to read.

Who says we don't have the most important jobs in the whole world?
