"Is 'me' a noun?"
The girls and I were reading a book this morning. There were the general giggles and exclamations when we saw the cute and quirky pictures from:
When we finished, Bella said,"Maddie, Is 'me' a noun?" She pointed to herself and looked questioningly at me.
"Yes, Bella, you are a proper noun."
"I'm one too," screamed Lizzie. "Look I'm a noun verbing on a noun." She began jumping around. Then Wiggy, for no reason except that she likes to jump, copied Lizzie. Ah, looks like I've got a host of frogs (nouns) in my room (noun)!!
I love when they understand a concept!
What books do you enjoy reading to your sisters and brothers?
