I was so happy today when a little girl named Allie showed some real creative thinking. Alllie, a four-year-old, is usually pretty quiet, but today when we were passing around the tom-tom drum for the children to play however they wished, Allie asked me if she could do a "special trick." I said of course. She said, "I have to stand up for it," which was already thinking outside the box since we always sat for this kind of activity.
Allie stood up, played the drum up high, then squatted low and played there, then stood again and played at waist level, or "in the middle," as she said. I thanked her for her idea and she was just beaming from showing us her "special trick."
