Ahhhh, YOUTH



I was introducing the letter "A" to my kindergarten class today. I was showing them a series of cards with words that begin with the letter A. I got to antenna and of course they asked what that was. I told them long, long ago before there were remote controls and cablevision people had to use an antenna to be able to watch TV.

One of the girls raised her hand and asked how people changed the channel if there weren't remote controls. I showed the class how a person would have to get up, walk to the televison and actually turn a knob!

In disbelief she looked at me and said...."you mean EVERY TIME they wanted to change the channel?".

take care,
Dawn
