The importance of names
Two friends came out to talk about one of them getting her GED. We worked on her math. She thinks her sister is smarter than she is. We played frakle. I told the sister working on her GED that her name was going to be either smart or brilliant. My name was wonderful and the other sister was going to be loser. The one I named loser plays on the computer and wins a lot. As loser she lost. I was teaching them the importance of what they call themselves. Often when someone has struggled in school they down themselves when they are really smart but just have not had the opportunity to learn easily.
