Multiple perspectives is usually one of the easier concepts to teach the kiddos. I know many people use different characters-if you were this character what would you have done, and we do those activities. But I also like to try to be a little creative with it sometimes.
Today I asked them to consider what life was like as Cinderella's glass slipper. It is very important component in the story-without it, Cinderella may have never become royalty and lived happily ever after. This was how my students saw life as a glass slipper:
I would not like to be broken.
I would fit.
I will be pretty.
when she ran I would stay.
I would smell stinky toes.
I would want to be put on the right foot.
I did not know who Cinderella is and I put it on the sister and her stinky feet-I would be grossed out.
I would be beautiful.
I would be so so so so surprised.
I would be tired because everybody's foot is in me.
I will have a friend.
