can come back to haunt a teacher.
Today I pulled the pirate ship for the children to play with the Gingerbread Pirates that I made for the class. (A BIG hit by the way). After reading the story I told the children that the ship and pirates were available to play with. One child, after looking at the boat, gave an exasperated sigh and said, "Oh, Mrs. R, that is the Mayflower!"
And so it was.
