“How do you snap?” asked Sasha (not her real name)
“Well you put your thumb and second finger together, and move them quickly like this” I responded
She then attempted it and it barely made a sound.
“You want to have the second finger hit your palm, and do it quicker” I suggested.
She tried it again… and her face lit up
“I did it! I can snap!!!! I can’t wait to tell my mom when she gets home”
Mom arrives about 10 minutes later
“Mom!!! I have to show you something” snaps with a sound
I felt so proud that I made an impact on her life 🙂 When I shared the story with Nathan, he told me that she will always remember that I was the one to taught her how to snap!
These are the moments that make teaching and working with children wonderful 😀
