I was going to use the Masha cartoon in my intermediate class today, but I had another story on line and the kids wanted to go that way…it was the one about the Canadian dentist who bought John Lennon’s tooth at auction for 22.6 (?) euros. Fun! We added a few facts, like the idea that he already has a collection of various teeth…

Kids are always surprised when I bring them a story where they have come up with some of the real facts. This time, those facts were “dentist,” “auction,” and “Canadian.” Of course, it’s because I’m picking those things out of their weird ideas, after having traveled a different route for a while and after having possibly directed them slightly, not because they’re mind readers, but they think they are, and they love it.

I’ll use their story for the advanced kids to read tomorrow.
