Pee Pool

I knew I was forgetting something from that lunch with second-graders yesterday:

When I asked the kids what they’d been doing in class that morning, they said they were learning about compound words.  So I asked what compound words they’d learned.

One little guy said: “Doghouse…  newspaper… mailbox… people.”

I thought, Huh?  “People”?  But if you say it out loud, it does sound kind of like a compound word.

  2. My grandmother was an English teacher, and she was full of stories like this!
