I said, “It looks like you got the first graph correct. How about we try the second one?” He continued to stare at the paper, but he said, “Ok.” I asked James, “Where do we start?” He pointed to the equation and said “solve for x.” He grabbed it tiny pencil with no eraser and started to write.

James, for this first time in our five minutes of interaction, looked me in the eyes and said, “Do you have a pencil sharpener?” As I got up to get the pencil sharpener from Grace, still staring at his paper, James cracked a smile. I handed James the purple pencil sharpener. He looked at the pencil sharpener and slowly began to sharpen his pencil. James turned the pencil once, then paused. He did this again, and followed the same pattern for about 10 sharpens. James then placed on the pencil shavings on the desk.

Six-year-old children do not make good doctors. This statement may seem fairly obvious, but my six-year-old-self was ignorant to this fact. Sitting in the middle of a carpet floor of a white-walled classroom, my best friend Gracie and I were using mechanical pencils to give each other ‘shots’. After cleaning our arms, hands, thighs and any other body parts that desperately needed medical attention with hand sanitizer and tissues, we traded turns being the doctor and administering the ‘shots’.…

learned how to write cursive and now everything we write has to be in cursive. Except for math. But it doesn’t hurt to ask the teachers if we need to. I personally like to write in print rather than in cursive. “Of course you do. Everything you write needs to be in cursive except for math,” she responded. I mentally groaned.
