During our social studies discussion on American symbols:
Me: Who can tell me a new American symbol we have learned about?
Student A: The White House
Me: That’s right! Who lives at The White House?
Student B: Barack Obama
Me: That’s right! Who is Barack Obama? Why is he important?
Student C: He’s that black guy who talks on T.V. all the time.
Me: (Trying not to laugh) Yes, he is AND he is also the president of the United States.
I love the perceptions of six and seven year olds!
Student: Miss Blaylock, my brain is banging my head and it hurts.
I think that was his way of telling me he had a headache, but don’t you just love his descriptive language?
