Leaps and Bounds

Each week, throughout this school year, 
I've tutored 3 kindergarten children in 
reading readiness. Every Tuesday and some 
Thursdays we would work on letter 
recognition, writing, and reading comprehension. 

Oh to have been there, and 
witnessed their growth from knowing 0
letters in September to all 52 
in May. It took my words 
away. I hadn't expected to cry. 

But that growth means so much. 
It means there will be 3
less students coming to 1st grade 
under-prepared. It means that some teacher 
will inherit 3 students who are 
better equipped read. Priceless. Just priceless.

~~Happy Six Word Friday! Our prompt was: GROWTH.
