It was a proud teacher moment today when I was put in my place by one of my 6 year old students.
This little boy finds reading tricky and is currently the only one in his reading group as they are grouped according to their reading level.
I looked over this morning to see him on his iPad, not reading his book as he was supposed to be doing. I said to him, slightly sternly, "You need to read your book before you complete the activity on your iPad."
He looked up a me with a confused expression and replied "I'm on my class site finding out which book I need to read."
He was, indeed, not only doing exactly the right thing but becoming an independent learner at the same time.
