We were doing a spelling activity this morning, unscrambling jumbled up letters to spell a word. Great fun with the interactive whiteboard! Three letters, t-i-e were causing one of the boys a little trouble so I gave him a clue.
"It begins with t."
Still no lightbulb moment so I tried again.
"It's something that men wear," I said.
Immediately another little voice piped up, "Underpants!"
A touch of divergent thinking perhaps?
