Yesterday I looked around Sarah's classroom and spotted a display where kids had drawn pictures of their pets and then dictated a short sentence or two to put under them (they are 3 and a half - no writing yet.) Most of the kids' were something like "I have a dog. He plays with me."
Sarah's? "I have a camel. He goes down the slide with me. He likes to eat grapes."
And this morning in the car:
Sarah: *mumbles something*
Me: I'm sorry sweetie, can you speak up? My ears aren't working right today.
Sarah: Are they out of batteries?
Sarah: Mommy, is it raining?
Me: *looks up* It looks like it's thinking about it.
Sarah: *indignant* Mommy! The sky doesn't think!
Me: Yes...yes you're right.
