Several years ago I showed my students slides of my summer trip to France.
When I was explaining the brief history of Joan of Arc, I mentioned that she
was "burned at the stake." One of my serious first graders wanted to know
if the "steak" (in his mind) was well done or rare. So I took some time to
eplain the difference in the spelling and meaning of the same sounding
words. It was hard not to smile, though. Oh, those precious memories!
