A cartoon from my first grade year.

There was no kindergarten at my grade school back in the 1950s so I began first grade as a five year old. I was in my reading group reading out of a "Dick and Jane" reader. I learned reading using the phonics method where each syllable in a word is sounded out deliberately. Well, we were reading a story about Dick, Jane and Sally going to the beach. Apparently they had taken sandwiches for a picnic. Well, in sounding out the word, "sand. . . . wich," I thought it meant "sand witch." I kept telling my teacher I had never seen a sand witch. Oh, my, she got quite upset with me. "Of course, you have. You've eaten sandwiches, haven't you?" I think she though I was being deliberately obtuse but I wasn't. I was just obtuse!! :-)

anniedeb says: Haha! Kim, that incident remains burned in my memory. When the teacher began quizzing me about sandwiches, my reading buddies started laughing. It's funny what stays with a person. It's nice Spoonflower is here as a cathartic tool. ;-) Appreciate so much your comments.
