C is for Cannonball

We're working on the letter C in school this week. So I'm working with my small groups and ask the kids in my high group to give me some more words that start with C to add to our chart.

I get the usual: cat, car, cake. And then one girl is all "cannonball"! I'm impressed she knows what a cannonball is since I work in the worst part of town and the chances of her seeing one out here are kinda slim. So I draw a little black cannonball.

She's all..."No. That's not it."

Here goes our convo:

Me: A cannonball. Like what comes out of a cannon?
Little Girl: No!
Me....um, come and draw it.

SO she goes up and draws a stick figure with a head and arms and a body and then gets the RED crayon to draw fire where the legs should be cause "it helps him fly" and then gets the black crayon again and draws "the things for swimming" over his eyes. GOGGLES.

I'm all..."Cannonball the superhero?" And yep. Thats who it was.

This is of course the same girl who wants to be Captain America when she grows up.

Four year olds can be really adorable sometimes.

And apparently I don't have a Sam icon so have his baby sister instead!!!

That is the MOST ADORABLE tiny child in the history of EVER.

(I hope she tells you that J is for Jubilee)

Her parents have been teaching her the ABCs of X-Men.

A is Angel.
B is for Beast
C is for Cannonball.

I told her mom I want a copy of this book they made of it!

I'll ask what J is. I bet it IS Jubilee.

I want a copy of that!

I hope it's Jubilee and not Juggernaut.
