Sometimes I have the great honor of working in a school with 3-5 year old people. This is a place where EVERYone learns in a safe and wonder-filled way.
One boy im-pressed me with his flexible & imaginative mind.
He introduced me to a beanbag duck named Sterling, and a small box that once held an alarm clock.
Following my pleasure to meet them both,
I asked if the box could be used again?
Immediately, he put the box on the head of the duck and designated it a space helmet. How quickly he knew!
Later during show & tell it was revealed that Sterling the
duck was also a Martian. The duck and the box had been transformed.
