Student: Miss Duff look! (as she presses her lips forward to make a duck face)
Teacher: What's that?
Student: It's beauty!  (as she continues to push out her lips)
Teacher: Oh, that's beauty?!
Student: Yes, it's what you do when you're beautiful.
Teacher: (silence)

I love these kindergarteners!  I wonder where she saw this?  

We have all seen that profile pic or IG post with the famous duck face, and apparently five year olds have too. 

I always say this, but I love giving children the opportunity to speak as it allows us to really help them navigate the things they see and hear. 

What do your students or children view as beautiful?
