Mommy, she said. My teacher said I was a wonderful wine weader. That is an alliteration!
She really came home from kindergarten and said that. While, yes, I suppose technically “wonderful wine weader” is an alliteration I was surprised that her teacher would have chosen that particular phrase to teach poetry concepts.
I asked my daughter’s teacher about it and she laughed so hard she was tearing up. The teacher told me that Claudia had been line leader all that week and that the actual terminology she used was “lovely line leader”.
And to think I thought I would run out of things to write about when The Goon Squad went to kindergarten.
