A note from a teacher (in the NY Times) tells of hearing some little students humming a tune. She asked “What is that song?”
She was told — by several of them — that it was a song about “the juicy vegetable.” They had learned it in another class.
After more conversation, and a little digging, she learned that it was a song about “The Jewish Festival.”
Gosh. Never assume; talk around concepts until they are clearly understood!
