/> Raising Angels: Meat-Eaters

Monday, December 06, 2010


When I give my fourth grade students their spelling tests, I like to ditch the suggested sentences that the book provides (excuse me while I yawn). Instead I try to make them more relevant for them.

This week one of the words was butcher. So I said, "Butcher. When I'm in the mood for a really nice steak, I go to the butcher. Butcher."

Simultaneously, across the room, the students responded mid-test with, "Mmmmm...STEAK."

Ah, carnivores.
