in kindergarten workshop today i watched a teacher hold up a picture of a tomato.
"What's this?" she asked.
"I KNOW! I KNOW!" a little one jumped up and down in his seat.
i guess if you've never seen a tomato, and only recognize it from the picture on the box, a picture of a tomato IS a picture of sauce.
In my first grade guided reading group I was trying to explain the concept of dew to children who live in apartment buildings and don't have any concept of what grass looks like in the morning.
"Poo? Like dog poo?"
"The grass is wet? Like someone used their hose?"
