I mentioned earlier that we were reading the news. I just can’t bear to read more of that disaster tonight with my parent classes. Somehow I ended up finding a story about a crocodile that swallowed a lady’s telephone. The park rangers wouldn’t believe her until they heard ringtones coming from the animal. He’s lost his appetite now and may need surgery. In searching earlier for the word “explodes” (thanks to Laurie, who has inspired me to do news/song/video searches when I have specific vocabulary), I came up with a story about a python who exploded when he tried to eat an alligator. And when looking for news about airports, I found a story about a proposal at 35,000 feet. So we’re going to get all that vocabulary into the parents’ minds, and then tomorrow I’ll use these stories with my kids.
