I handed her the paper and a black pen and said, “Use your imagination. What could this be?”
She looked at it for a few seconds, turned it upside down, and started to draw.
“It’s a big ship and strong winds blew it off course and it wrecked on an island where some natives lived.”
“They were nice natives, though, and they lived in little huts with sea-shells on their doors.”
(And they evidently spoke English!)
“”The captain is worried that all of their stuff will get wet.”
“The sailors need to save the wheat they had stored on their ship, so they put the bags of grain on a smaller boat and took it to the island where it would stay fresh.”
And who are those two riding on the boat that look like they are in love?”
“Umm…I’m not sure…I don’t really know why I drew that part.”
Didnt’ it turn out great? She’s so creative!
We may need to work on spelling a bit, though.
