Happy Slice of Life Tuesday

On Sunday when we were eating lunch, I was sharing how the cheese we were eating was shaped like a square-
and Natalie blurted out, "Good noticing, Mama!"
Of course, her remark made us giggle because noting the cheese was shaped like a square wasn't earth shattering-maybe to her it was. And then, I pondered on what may have been running through her mind...Could it be that she had picked up on my modeling of noticing details? Maybe...
This little sliver of a slice caused me to think that we never really know just how well children or students are able to pick up on the modeling of what we're thinking aloud. As a result, we should be sure that behaviors and thinking we've modeled are really what we want to see and hear.
