My 1st graders’ imagination is endless!
At the beginning of the lesson we talked about colours and they recalled any flashcards we have used having this specific colour. Then while making our colours mini book, they made up stories about the things they were drawing. So we heard of a race between a blue elephant and a green turtle who wanted a yellow lemon ,some fish that were very hungry and wanted to eat a piece of pizza but they couldn’t because they were in the fishbowl ,and many other crazy lovely stories!!!
According to Sir Ken Robinson who is an expert in learning and children’s education, ‘imagination is the source of all human achievement‘. It is essential in the learning process and can influence their development.
