An Every Day Conversation

Feb. 12, 2013By: Shari Reasoner

Teacher Junelyn and I planned an activity for library that involved each of the kids sharing about a favorite book using a prop related to their chosen book.  Junelyn and I had our own book and prop picked, but we kept it a bit of a secret from the kids.  A student whose class was not participating approached me and whispered, "Tell me what your book is.  I won't tell." 

I replied, "No, I think I'll keep it a secret!"

The student raised her hand as if to make a pledge and said back to me, "I promise."

Raising my right hand also, I said, "You promise?"

Without missing a beat, she said, "I plead the 5th."

This student is in American Studies and she was applying what she had learned in class to our conversation.  I must admit I laughed pretty hard. 

Later that day, the kids had a great time sharing about their favorite books.  One student dressed as Gandalf from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.  Another student wore a quiver and horn to represent Robin Hood.  Oh, yes, Junelyn and I had the kids try Turkish Delight from C. S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
