The Long I

We have a six year old daughter that is classic nld. Some of the things she comes up with sometimes are quite comical and very literal. One of the most recent episodes involved her teacher and the daily phonics lesson. The teacher told all the students to write a long i on their paper. You can guess what Cassie wrote on hers, her i was as long as the paper. Her teacher thought that was great because in all her 24 years of teaching that was the first time anyone had taken her so literally. She even copied the paper to remind herself not everyone thinks the same.
