The kids laugh and laugh as she hangs up the silly things (and this is when I have a "teachable moment" about appropriate volume and length of laughing in class..)
I asked the kids to think about something silly they would hang up on the clothesline to dry. I gave them a piece of blank paper and they drew a picture and wrote the word of what they would hang up.
We hung our drawings up on a clothesline in the classroom.
The students had a chance to share their drawing with the class, and we were able to be creative, just like the story was!
