An Interesting Metaphor

We read My Mouth is a Volcano. This humorous story is about a boy who interrupts others while they are speaking.  His words just erupt from his mouth. When others interrupt him when he is presenting to the class, he realizes that he is being rude and he consequently learns the importance of self-control. A great discussion on taking turns in group discussions followed this read aloud. We decided that when we blurt out an answer, we are stealing our classmate’s opportunity to share his/her ideas. You may hear me say,  “Are you erupting?”
