I know that it is important to help my students understand lyrics but today I realized that I may need to take a bit more time to make sure I'm doing this.
During my K lesson we were working on the poem This Little Pig from Game Plan. As we were echoing the text I was surprised by how they were speaking the text back. In the 3rd phrase it mentions the word "Snout" but instead of hearing "This little pig shows us his snout", I heard "This little pig shows us his SNOT"! After stopping and talking about this word, there were giggles all around.
I have always been careful about discussing lyrics with deeper meaning and words that I know were well beyond their years but I never thought about this word. Lesson learned, we may need to make sure and discuss what a snout is before echoing. :)
