UPDATE: Isn't it nice when they 'get' it?

OVERHEARD IN GRADE 1 FRENCH TODAY

(we are playing the song which accompanies the play we're reading)

Child A: Hey! If you listen to the song? It's like the *song* is about the same thing as the *story* is!

(we are colouring puppets of the characters in the play)

Child B: You know, these puppets are about farm animals, and the story is about farm animals.

Me: Oui

Child B: So we could, like, *use* the puppets to, you know, act out the story! Like a play!

At last, the light dawns :)
