Funny teaching story:
“As you know, kids are so literal! We were working with one of our students with speech therapy and her teacher was showing her a demonstration with a fake set of teeth as to where to put her tongue with she says the “r” sound. The teacher asked her to put her tongue where she showed her and instead of doing it in her own mouth, she actually licked the set of teeth that she was holding!! We laughed so hard, and the teacher said that was the first time in 20 years that a child took this instruction so literal! “
