"Fireflies! Blinking on, blinking off, dipping low, soaring high above my head, making white patterns in the dark."
As we have been reading, we've been noticing lot different things that make light in the story. Like good readers do, we noted down the different lights sources that we saw in the story:
- "It's a firefly!" - Kili
- "The fireflies are making the light!" - Siena
- "I can see the moon." - Anri
- "The light is coming from all the windows and the street lights." - Julian
- "I want to learn about how fireflies glow!" - Aubrey
So, we had some sorting to do. In groups, the children worked together to distinguish between 'real' light sources and items that reflect light. There was some rigorous debate within the groups as the children worked together to establish which items produced light and create a consistent and thorough understanding within our class, of what a light source really is.
