Just now, one of my students said (to a group of friends seated around her…and loud enough for everyone to hear), “Hey, isn't it crazy that Christ's birthday and Christmas are both celebrated on the same day?” The other kids sitting there looked at her and started laughing. They thought she was joking. Then someone asked her if she knew why Christmas was originally celebrated. She didn’t know.
I love listening in on their little conversations. They’re learning so much at this age…even if it has nothing to do with what we’re studying.
