A Kindergartener proudly reading about a dozen consonant-vowel-consonant words to me - sounding them out and reading very carefully, then giggling when he read "but".
Three second-graders talking amongst themselves as they work on projects to give to school volunteers for Volunteer Apprecication Week: "Who are these flowers for?" "The help." "I'm giving mine to Ms. X." "No, she gets paid." "She gets paid too much!"
Walking out into the hallway after my 1st-graders leave and seeing that one had given his carefully-made flowers, not to a volunteer, but to a cute little girl in his class.
