I am full of the tricks of the trade. But, alas, even after 129 days of school (we count them in first grade), I still have to make corrections with some students daily.
I was not aware of how ingrained my words were until Friday morning's assembly. This is the way my students closest to me said the Pledge of Allegiance:
"Right hand over your heart. No, your other hand. I pledge allegiance to the flag..."
Hoping that can be unlearned before second grade.
