This was my favourite moment at school today.
We were going through some work together - the whole class - when we came to this question: "Fact, or fantasy? The fairy flew through the window."
First, we needed to establish the difference between fact and fantasy.
The next issue was whether the fairy sentence was fact or fantasy.
Then I asked the fateful question.
"Grade threes, what is it about this sentence that makes it fantasy?"
Sweet but bewildered boy put up his hand.
This was an event - I had to call on him.
"Sweet but bewildered boy, can you tell us? What is it about this sentence that makes it fantasy?"
SBBB answered, "Fairies can't fly through windows."
I think I managed to hide my laughter.
Southern Ange, I'm so excited for your new camera! I think you should bring it to the Great, Soon-to be White North for its christening. We need to take some photos together again.
