I haven’t done a kids only post in some time, so why not now?
I love my first graders (and fourth graders), but they say some of the craziest things.
MG – Andy why do you have dirt on your head?
A- She did it (pointing to another little girl)
MG – Mary why did you put dirt on Andy’s head?
M – Because he was smiling at me!
MG – Andy is just happy, he was smiling because he was happy!
M – Oh…
During small math groups
M- I don’t like boys!
A- Well I can’t have a girlfriend!
M- I don’t want a boyfriend!
Yes, during small math groups…not talking about math.
Whilst doing a quick write…
MG – Okay Andy what do you want to write about…and no basketball!
MG – No jumping
MG – No basketball
MG – Okay, what’s your topic sentence?
A – I like jumping in the leaves! (Yes each sentence ended with an exclamation)
Oh, I have the cutest cat…evah!
