#044 odd one out

044/365 odd one out, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Today was filled with numbers. Lots of grading to do, so I spent most of the day with the pocket calculator in my hand adding points and working out percentages. Even the Daily Shoot assignment contained numbers:

Odd or even: Compose an image with an odd or even number of subjects today, and make a photo.

For some reason, this made me think of ‘the odd one out’. That’s why, this children’s trolley caught my eye in the local supermarket, while I was having a short break from grading to do some shopping.

Although ‘odd one out’ usually has a negative connotation – something that doesn’t belong – this trolley must have a very positive use for any family with children. What’s more, it offers a nice splash of colour in the blue and metal conformity.

How could we help our students develop a positive mindset about the odd ones out at our schools? They are too easily just marginalized.
