Kids Say the Darndest things!
Jeannie over at Kindergarten Lifestyle is having a fun linky party about the funny things kids say. I love how honest and open kids are. They rarely hesitate to speak what is on their minds, which adults tend to do. This can be good or bad, but mostly it brings laughter to the classroom.
One of the teachers on my grade level has taught for 48 years! Can you believe that? She always talks about how she writes down the crazy things they say and how she would love to write a book. I wish that I had written down all of the things I have heard in my few years of teaching. One great one happened this year. We were finishing lunch in the cafeteria and we were cleaning up. My student came rushing up to me, excited and smiling and said "Miss King, Miss King, There is another teacher who looks just like you!" He moves around our table and points out this other teacher. He then says, "well...except she is a lot skinnier than you!" I couldn't help but laugh and say "Yes, she is a lot skinnier!" I continued laughing the whole way back to the room!
Another great one happened as we prepared for the 100th day of school. One of my students told the AIG (gifted) teacher that we were going to be dressing up for the 100th day. The AIG teacher was excited and couldn't wait to see the students all dressed up. The student then said, "Don't worry you don't have to dress up, because you already look like you are 100!"
