Transfer of Knowledge

A few students are learning phonics to help them become better readers. 
Erica learned digraphs today: sh, th, ch, ck. 

Then in science she was taking notes and wrote the word 'Earth'. 
She then called the teacher over and said, 'Look at that digraph in that word, 'th'.'

The ability to take what you learned in one class and use it in another tells a teacher you really do understand!
