Word Families = Bad

It just gets keep getting worse. The best part is that my students don't quite understand what they say. Today's word family was -ew...yep, you got what was coming.

One of my students gave the word Jew, which is fine in itself. I explained who the Jewish people are. One of my boys turned around to talk with me and asked if the war was against Jews. Now I know where you might go with that, but he was just misunderstood. I told him no and he then asked, "Afghanistan?" I just nodded yes.

Then, when it can't get any worse, one of my boys said, "Like Judge Jew-dy (meaning Judy)."

I couldn't contain my laughter! I wrote it down as much as I could while trying not to laugh out loud.
