This happened today. Yes, it really did!
Kindergarten. Kids and I discussed the vegetables on the table,
(potatos, carrots, various squash, corn, apples) and I told them to choose
one and paint it. Easels set up, paint out. They've painted many times.
Jesse's turn. He chooses corn, loads brush with yellow paint and
procedes to put the paint on the corn. He was "painting the corn!" - He's
one of those kids - sweet, but I don't think the penny dropped.
