For the classroom. You might be able to use this story as a warm-up activity to get students guessing how the kindergartner used abc's to save his dad's life.

"Nathaniel Dancy Jr., a 5-year-old Newark, N.J. kindergartner, was picked up from school by his dad and as they made their way home, his father became violently ill."

"He used his father's cell phone to call his grandmother, Susan Hardy-Blackman, and ask for help. Because Nathaniel cannot read yet, he did the best he could to describe where he and his dad were. He spelled out, "F-U-R-N-I-T-U-R-E." Hardy-Blackman was still confused and not sure where they were located. Nathaniel then told her, "Grandma, use your active listening skills."

"Nathaniel then mentioned that he and his dad had just driven through the tunnel."

"...she realized that her grandson and his father must be near Furniture 22 on Route 22 by the tunnel. So Hardy-Blackman was able to call 911 and tell them where to go."

"Doctors said that he had a stroke and an aneurysm, and he's lucky to be alive."
