benny's pre-school classroom has been exploring the art of storytelling.
i, of course, love this.
recently, i walked in to find their latest storytelling exercise posted on the wall.
basically, the teachers read the same prompt to each child, and allowed them to finish the story.
the prompt detailed a little brother and sister who wander into the forest behind their house.
when they try to go home, they find that their home is no longer there and has been replaced with more forest/mountains.
they heard a noise and turned the corner and see. . .
given all the stories in the world. . .
(or the 7 basic plots.)
. . . my three-year old chooses to have his parents murdered.
thankfully, he also made himself a hero.
