A Marley Moment (no, not the rabbit)

This child has been working nonstop in Geography, moving from puzzle maps to flags.  This morning, he decided to do the parts of the fish.  Now, he is a quiet child but he has become so much more assured in this, his second year.  He came and stood by my chair in his subdued way and said with a sweet, little smile, "Look at my fish."  It took me a few seconds--how about you?  Yes, he incorporated the flag of Jamaica in the body of his fish.  I knew our materials were cross-disciplinary, but this was a bit unexpected!  Very apropos also, because I started teaching the children "Three Little Birds" today.
