It's been ages! I miss posting, so here I am again. Nothing much today, but hopefully more frequent posting these days.

Conversations with third-graders:

S: Mrs. Stone, what do you call an object that is not real?

Me: Um..... Fake????

S: No, like an object that can't move.

Me: Non-living?
(thinking that would be a logical suggestion, as
it has been a recent science topic)

S: No... there's another word...

Me: Inanimate?
(thinking: "no, she's in third grade.
she's not thinking 'inanimate'.")

S: Yes!! That's it!
