Tweet, Tweet

Mrs. Anderson, our reading specialist at school pulled a couple of my struggling students out of class today for reading assessments.

She told me this story after school today and I thought it was so cute:

Mrs. A: I'm going to say a word, and I want you to tell me what letter is starts with. For example, if I say HAT, you would say "h" because HAT starts with "h."
Student: OK.
Mrs. A: KITE
Student: K
Mrs. A: Good job. How about this one, MAN
Student: M
Mrs. A: Excellent. How about this, BIRD
Student: I don't know.
Mrs. A: Let me help you. What sound do you hear when I say BIRD?
Student: Tweet!!!!
Mrs. A: OK, let's try a different one. DOG
Student: Arf!!!!!

Silly kids.
