Naming themselves

Here's what the world could look like: at the end of my preK music class I offered each kid to call themselves whatever they wanted. One kid called herself a blueberry, one boy called himself a princess, one girl called herself a boy, and a few kids called themselves by their given names. Kids who don't always participate because of speech issues chose to say their names. The take-away for me: give children as many opportunities as possible to name themselves. They will shine!
