Home run, then a single

So I tried to do a demo for some colleagues of a home run story.  The kids weren’t there.  It was a single at best, let alone a home run.  What’s up with that?  Simple!  In the homer, the kids made the story. 

They are so spontaneous.  So I learned that it is not about the story or the materials, it’s about the kids.  Sound familiar? 

That explains why if you use the same story script in successive classes, but draw completely different ideas from the different kids, the stories never resemble each other, and you don’t get bored trying to force a story on them.
