Thanks Mrs Kelly,

I think you taught me when I was in Standard 4. I remember being so pleased with myself for being the first finished with some writing on birds…and you quite sternly told me to go and “Add some more details” so I did, and then you awarded me with a certificate at assembly for my extra effort. Thanks for showing me that I can do better, add more, and, that in many circumstances first finished is not ideal!. I now share this story, and the very same point with my own students – and it works!
