Kids are so funny sometimes! My goal is to write down those moments that make me laugh so I don't forget them. Since I'm writing them anyway, I thought I'd share them with you....
3rd Grader (while discussing the early origins of "America"): "The pilgrims came to America on the Cauliflower."
4th Grader (same topic, different class): "Why is the statue of liberty a girl? Why didn't they make a boy and a girl, so it would be fair?"
Kindergartener: My daddy told me to go straight to class.
Me: Well, he probably didn't know that it isn't time to go to your classroom.
Kindergartener: Sometimes he doesn't know what he's talking about.
I have a video by "Ani-Music", an animated instrument video that the kids love. Sometimes on Free Choice Day the kids will ask to watch it. This time, a second grader who was new to our school asked what it was. Another boy said, "You don't know? Dude, it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!" LOL!
