I often have a "Morning Starter" to keep my class purposefully engaged while the register is being taken. Today I asked them to think of as many things beginning with the letter 'a' that were.....
Football teams: Answers included Arsenal, Aston Villa, Albion Rovers etc.
Countries, Cities or towns: I got Australia, Aberdeen
Something you can eat? Class were initially stumped until one little boy put up his hand and in all seriousness
said "a sandwich?"
My helper had to leave the room before his drink of water came back out out his nose.
I could only respond with "can't argue with that."
