During handwriting time, I often sit with my students. I love listening to their chattering. Today, one group was talking about where they were born. Fernande said, “I wasn’t born in Haiti. I was born on La Tortue.” La Tortue (the famous island from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’) is an island six miles out to sea north of our city. I explained that she was born in Haiti because La Tortue IS IN Haiti. Maxony adamantly said, “No! It’s in the ocean!”

... by the way... every student made a 100 on their Capital City/Country matching test!!!
