OIK: and where is the yellow cube?
Then there are the kids who are positioned-and-located somewhere in between, like Bryon. He recently arrived from an English-speaking African country and is "in progress" on this measure of mathematical concept acquisition.
Me, with an encouraging smile and a flourish as I place a yellow Unifix cube beneath but not touching my chin:
And where is the yellow cube, Bryon?
Umm....That might be a trick question. [with sudden insight] I know! Before your neck!
Maybe Bryon's trick answer makes you think of a poem located somewhere like mine below. Leave it in the comments and I'll round up on Friday.
Before my neck
there was just a little necklet
which I wore laced with pearls
of baby powder, jewels
of new baby blink, charmed
with welcome kisses
