Daily Prompt Challenge – “Awestruck”

The first grade student comes into my room. “Can you read this to me?” he asks. My heart just melted as I saw this little guy’s attempt to write a book. He looks up at me with these big eyes. Oh boy. It’s not quite decipherable…after all, this boy struggles with reading and here is his attempt to write a book…in cursive. Yikes. I made a big deal of his attempt and took a picture and asked him to share the story with us. For me, this was an “A-ha moment” of realizing that if I can just tap into his motivation and desire to write, then it may enhance his reading abilities. Am hopeful, and thankful for moments like these when you see the heart of students and the potential within…and pray for the wisdom and creativity to help them to develop the skills they need to use the gifts they’ve been given.
