I think I’m turning into one of those people who drive me crazy…you know, the crazy grandma type who chats you up while standing in line at the grocery store after school when all you want to do is pay for your gallon of milk and 24 pack of Charmin, go home and be done with it? You know the one–she wants to show you a wallet full of photos of her charming grand kids you don’t know?
Well, that’s me…except I’m not a grandma. Maybe the crazy part is right, though. 🙂 I am bursting to show someone photos of my utterly amazing 8th grade tough boys during their building stamina reading time. We didn’t get any further into the Daily 5 with them than the stamina, which is what I wanted most.
And thanks to today’s linky from Miss DeCarbo’s Sugar and Spice blog, I can treat you to a few photos that make me so proud of these boys who have struggled with reading so very long. As part of my contribution, here are the best wallet-worthy pictures I took today. When you think you’ve got a kid who may never read at all, keep these guys in mind. They inspire me…
(I realize that was really wordy for a linky called “Wordless” but I’m that crazy grandma again…lol)
