one of my classes has a book that talks a lot about travel and different travel scenarios. Actually I have 3 different classes that use the book, and I love the phrases all the kids know. One of the situations was about the troubles a traveler can experience, and one of the questions was something like what will you do if you can't communicate with another person while you are traveling? They all said things like I will use my body language. I love it! One of the other great phrases is my think, which is like an idea or thought. I find myself saying, "What is your think?" When we are in dialogue and I ask a student a question, often they will confirm my expectation of their answer by asking, "It is my think?" Yes, it is your think.
