This is the kind of thing I have to hear all day, every day. The very worst part is when two or three children get together and speak this language. Can you tell Elf is a little nervous and excited that he gets to tell all of you this "information?"
I love the little translations along the way. He is so cute!
He sounds like a lot of kids his age, and looks like he's the same age as my third-graders. Imagine having a class of 30 just like this who want to come up to your desk all day long and tell you things like this (whatever is individually important to them). It's quite a challenge to keep them in their chairs, and get the learning topics covered (while at the same time not hurting their feelings). Sometimes I eat lunch with my students and then they get a chance to tell me all this sort of important stuff!EileenDedicated Elementary Teacher Overseas (in the Middle East)elementaryteacher.wordpress.com
Hi Mrs. C.,I'm a regular follower of your blog and get the RSS feed. I'm wondering why I don't show up in you list of followers? I'd love to be there!Best regards,EileenDedicated Elementary Teacher Overseas (in the Middle East)elementaryteacher.wordpress.com
I think i would learn a lot listening to Elf!!
Elf is wonderful!!!! I love they way he gestures to emphasize what he is saying. His language WOW! Voice inflection!!!Never let anyone talk you into putting him in school! You are doing a great job with him!!!!!Seriously!
*sniff* Thanks, Tammy! Eileen, you're right that Elf would be in third grade if he were in public school. He would be just a month before cutoff, though, and Emperor would be ten days AFTER cutoff for second grade. So they're both mostly in third grade. Depends on when I get done with the box for each subject. I wish I could help you with Wordpress because I'd sure love to see your icon on my sidebar, but I'm only barely proficient with blogger. Sorry!Casdok, you'd learn more than you ever wished about the Keebler factory, Pokemon and whatever else enters Elf's brain if you came by.Sue, he's more than cute. He's lonely and wants you to listen to him all day. Shall I send him by? :] He doesnt' like seafood or rice, though. Oh, and it has to be the right brand of bread. And peanut butter. Maybe he'll stretch his diet to include pizza while he's there. The toppings have to be *just right* though. You DO have "Elf-sized" items in your house for him to use, right? Because he refuses to use normal-size items, what with being an elf and all.Come to think of it, he'd be a pretty hard guest to deal with. We just happen to have all that stuff at home, so he's happy.
