A Day in a Pair: Teaching Children the Power of Words

by GOOD Partner

October 5, 2012

After Eloise Porter introduces herself, the students enjoyed snacks while sharing their favorite books with her.

Before starting her day, Porter headed to her local school supply store to purchase items for her future students.

Porter helps one student understand the tricky words in his selected phrase: "They transcend time, space, and the limitations of their mind."

Porter passes out pencils and paper to the kids and answers questions as the students begin to think about their stories.

This student insisted on finishing his snack on the stairs as he illustrated his other phrase, "Money doesn't grow on trees."

Porter assists the girls in deciphering the phrase, "Pretending to look tough."

The girls act out their phrase, "Trying to touch a cloud."
