Two weeks ago my 1st graders were learning about farm animals.
I prepared a little cut and paste activity and they were all busy trying to finish as soon as possible to get a star and a hug from their teacher.
At some point a very cute little boy called Uğur placed a small, folded piece of paper in my hand. I thought it was rubbish and told him to throw it away twice.
He declined and lingered around me mumbling something in Turkish. Finally, he pulled my head down, grabbed my hand again and whispered to my ear: ‘Teacher, is hediye (gift)’.
I looked at the piece of paper and asked what it was. The boy said ‘It’s ................... ‘.
Question 1: can you guess what he created i.e what the gift actually was?
Question 2: whose face can you see in the background of the picture?
