My youngest student comes out with some hilarious off-the-cuff comments from time to time. Little kids come out with some great one-liners and part of what makes them so funny is that they often have things quite upside down and don't realise it. I had one such moment this week. My student was enamored with a book about sharks, which had plenty of pictures of sharks which were labelled with captions identifying what kind of shark they were. One page had a shark approaching a shark cage, and the caption was to do with the cage, not the shark.
Student: What shark is that? Me: I don't know, it doesn't say.
Student: No, what's that shark?
Me: The words are talking about the shark cage, not the shark. It doesn't say what the shark is.
Student: Yes, but what shark is it?
Me: [read the caption]. See, it talks about the cage.
Student: Put your glasses on!
Because in the mind of a 7yo putting on glasses, that help you see, will help you read things that aren't on the page.
