Oral Interpretation

For the Grandmas and Grandpas.

Addie, "The Whiting and the Snail," by Lewis Carroll.  I'm amazed by her poise here.  She repeats one small little line, which makes her cringe when she watches the video.  Her cringing makes me cringe.  I seem to have passed some perfectionism on.  Shit.  And, it was bound to happen.

Nolie with her best friend S., "I Will Not Hatch," by Shel Silverstein.  I hope it's okay I'm posting this here, seeing as it features someone else's kid (M., you'll let me know if I should take it down).  They were so nervous.  They so rocked it.

This is one of the best things about the girls' school.  Hundreds of kids participate in "Oral Interp" or "OI."  Being smart and quirky is cool.  One pair of girls did The Argument Clinic from Monty Python.  How great is that?  I wish every kid could have this experience, if they wanted it.


  1. Precious and wonderful!! Poised perfectly!

  2. Don't mind at all. Thanks actually for posting because now I can redirect our family to the YouTube :) They did awesome!
