responsive painting to poem, memory, ants, teaching


Continuing Ragain's "The Clouds Pile Up North" Maj tells the children "... not to kill the ants... because these tiny creatures are all God’s children, like us, and they are my friends. I know their names, every ant on the hill. The worker ants are scurrying home to play with their kids." Clint asks the name of one, Brave Benny is the response. The boy squashes the ant. I wonder what made Clint do it? I picture Clint jumping and stamping while the other children observe and learn.
