Teachable moments! Turning "Oops!" to "Oh yeah!"
It happens to all of us! Despite our best efforts mistakes happen. Sometimes it's a typo. Other times it is a tech glitch or even wrong information. The good news is that those "oh no" moments can provide awesome learning opportunities. My classroom library, for example, had some vintage literature in it. I loved when kids would come to me and tell me that the T-rex in a beloved dinosaur book had the wrong posture or that the book about the "First Thanksgiving" had it all wrong!
Once again hats off to Ms. Tedesco's Scientists and Mrs. A's Superheroes for their keen observation and critical thinking skills. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and discoveries. The world needs your questioning and reasoning skills. YOU ROCK!
