Love this linky idea from A Turn to Learn! My kids say the best things sometimes!
During writing time, we've been stretching out words and then writing down those sounds. One of my students was stuck on a word, but eventually got it. He said, "I think God came into my head and gave me the answer!" :)
In the fall, we learned about the word "deciduous", trees that lose their leaves. A few of the students chimed in together, "my dad is deciduous because he's been losing his hair!"
