Kindergarten Reasoning

Today we talked about reality and fantasy during our whole group reading time. One of the activities for today was showing pictures on the smart board of things, and students had to decide why the picture was something that could or couldn't happen, or reality or fantasy. I would also ask students why they chose the answer they did to assess their reasoning.

One of the pictures was of animals sitting at a table eating. The student I selected to answer the question selected that it could not happen. When I asked him why, this was his reply:

"Well, because animals don't eat at the table, because if they did, they would poop on the chairs."
Yeah....that's what I was thinking too. Hmm.
