Super Smart

Day 246

Today I was teaching the second grade the concept of alliteration. I use the book SuperHero ABC and then the students create their own superheroes.

I was surprised when one student could identify the word alliteration.  I asked him where he’d heard it.

“My sister’s in the fourth grade,” he said. “She’s done it for homework.”

“Good,” I replied. “Now you can tell her you’ve learned something from fourth grade too.”

“Yeah,” was his muttered response, not necessarily toward me. “Who’s the smart one now?”

Would it surprise anyone that I saw the first thing he’d written as a name for his superhero was Noisy Nathan?
