Earlier this evening, during a lesson on analogies, my student said to me:
"Jet is to plane as ferry is to boat. And ferry is a kind of boat, but it's also like a little tiny princess. Like the tooth fairy."
(Sidenote: I love the random conversations that are the side dish of teaching small children.)
The boy next to him chimed in: "And I heard that the tooth fairy looks like one of your relatives."
The first boy asked, "She does?? Have you seen her?"
Second boy: "Nope. But I know she looks like someone in my family."
Well, somebody has a very smart mommy.
(I'll tuck that one away.)
