One of Isaac’s classmates likes to draw pictures after lunch. Sometimes Isaac will grab a marker and scribble on a page.
Today with a smile on his face, Isaac grabbed a piece of paper and drew this, by far the most elaborate creation he has independently created this year. The first thing he drew was the picture in the middle. I asked him about it and he added more to the drawing.
What do you see?
His teacher thought the drawing bore a striking resemblance to the Millennium Falcon.
He wrote: I don’t know if I am only seeing this because I have been in full Star Wars mode for the last month or if he actually drew the Millennium Falcon. So I have to ask, has your family been into the Star Wars craze or is this just my imagination running wild?
Hmmmm, I'm not sure. I wish Isaac could tell us. Everyone in the family (minus Isaac and me) has seen the new Star Wars movie. Henry has a few Lego creations from Star Wars, both from past and present movies. Henry put one or two together over break, but I don't think any are the Millennium Falcon.
He seldom draws anything here. He has a hard time with that. I'm so glad he drew something today! Guess we better see if he wants to watch any Star Wars movies.
Thank you for sharing! I love to get these types of messages about classroom happenings!
When Isaac came home, I showed him the drawing. I asked him about it, but he didn’t want to look, much less answer questions. He didn’t want to talk about it. End of story.
Isaac’s teacher and classroom associate have been discussing Star Wars. (Apparently they are both big fans.) Isaac is listening. Isaac was quite decisive and intentional about drawing, which isn’t usually the case, so the teacher thought there was something there.
There probably is.
It's difficult not knowing the depth of Isaac's thoughts and feelings or what he is trying to express.
His teacher, who is a natural in the classroom, really understands Isaac. I appreciate his last words in our email exchange:
We’ll keep our eyes open for any other clues Isaac leaves for us.
