So many fantastic ideas arise when we talk together while we illustrate our ideas! Last week, a few Nitzanimers wondered, “How tall is the mountain of God?” Here’s what they had to say while they discussed their drawings:
Morah: What do you think about the mountain of God?
Second Grader 1: I think it just went up and up and up and up and never stopped going up
First Grader: That would be impossible
Second Grader 1: I don’t care. I just think
First Grader: If it never stopped going up it would just keep on going up and up
Second Grader 2: That’s the point
Morah: (couldn’t hear second grader 2) There’s what?
Second Grader 2: Where God is
First Grader: If you believe that God isn’t real then he was out of the atmosphere of our solar system which is impossible
Second Grader 1: Are we talking about space?
First Grader: Then no one would know about God
Second Grader 1: Oh! How tall is the mountain of God?
Morah: What comment or question do you have?
First Grader: Two million thousand billion feet
Edden: Um maybe…
Second Grader 3: Well it couldn’t be maybe that high unless
Second Grader 2: It was bigger than Mt Everest and it’s a real mountain so it can’t be
Second Grader 3: Moshe wouldn’t be able to climb it unless when he was in there was like a short cut and it was kind of high
Listening to children talk about their ideas while they draw has been the highlight of our theme so far. I’m so excited to continue to hear children share their ideas.
