I have say that I am quite proud of myself. Why, you ask? Well, I was going through the Reading program’s accompanying workbook and came across a workbook page I thought might be a little bit sophisticated for my students. I vacillated on whether or not to give it as a workbook page for my students, when suddenly I had a fantastic idea.
“I know what I’ll do. I’ll flatter them,” I said to myself. I’m not sure they can do it, but I will tell them that they are so good at figuring out “things” like this and see if it works. Fast forward a couple of days and you will see me laying it on pretty thick.
I told them that I almost didn’t give them a worksheet in their packet because it was pretty challenging. But, since I knew they could handle it, I gave it to them anyway.
“Are you ready?,” I asked.
“Of course we are,” yelled out one of my students, Peter.
So, I don’t have to tell you that they completed the worksheet without a hitch. The reason for my success- Flattery. It will get you everywhere.
