My kindergarten class did self portraits as a beginning project. I always
had them put their names and ages on their drawings. One year, a boy,
Michael, came up to me in class to show me his drawing. I noticed he had
put his name on it, but not his age. I ask him to write his age on his
drawing. He paused looking perplexed. I asked, "How old are you Michael?"
He proudly held his hand up to indicate he was five. I said, "go back and
put that on your drawing." He returned a few minutes later with his
drawing which now had an outlined hand on it (showing he was 5.)
I still have that drawing in my collection over 20 years later.
