You never know what conversation you are going to have with a student...
During our morning work time this morning, a student came up to me.
"What's a va-giii-ta?"
Taken back, I sputtered out, "Wh...Wha...What??"
"A va-giii-ta? What is it?"
Motioning for the little boy to come closer I whisper, "Where did you hear that word?" ...thinking he must be repeating a word he heard on the bus.
"I didn't hear it. I just want to know what a va-giii-ta is."
"Okay. okay." Dear Lord... just stop saying that word!!!!! "How do you know that word?"
"It's on the board."
"Choice A... I don't know what a va-giii-ta is."
