On Friday, while playing in the rain, the children discovered a bunch of snails (and slugs). They had all collected a few and were carrying them around.
For the sake of the snails, I suggested collecting them all in one place and watching them race.
Child: "But snails are slow."
Me: "But one of them surely has to be faster than the rest."
Everytime I watch the video I'm amazed at how much language, social interaction, investigation, and discovery took place.
If all these kids tried to sit this close together during storytime there would be pushing and complaining, but not around this stump.
