We introduced symmetry this week in math, and today we made symmetrical artwork by "blobbing" paint on half a sheet of paper, folding the paper over, rubbing it, then opening the paper. I worked with one table at a time, and we made a big production out of opening the papers. Then we tried to decide what the picture ended up looking like. (i.e. a butterfly, a mask, and so on.) When my Rhyming Boy's group was at my table, I opened one of the babies' pictures, and he blurts out, "It looks like a booty!" Which, by the way, it did NOT.
The funniest thing about all this is that VM is absolutely NOT one of "those" kids who get a kick out of using inappropriate words in school. I don't think he even realizes what he said when we were rhyming, and he was just calling it like he saw it with the picture. Ah...never a dull moment at the Hell-Hole....
