I have been trying to write down different things kids have said, but always seem to forget to send them out and then I forget them altogether! Here are some from this year and last year...
"Hey Mom, that is the library!" K student seeing me walk down the street.
1st grader : "You're not perfect?"
Me: "No, I am not. No one is perfect."
1st grader: "You look perfect to me."
After one day of being sick and not at school, I was greeted this way: "Oh, I thought you died..." says a 1st grader as he hurries past me on his way to the beanbags.
During one of my lessons with 2nd or 3rd graders last year I asked the class were paper came from and one student quickly told me "trees." Then another student raised their hand and said, "You can also make paper out of elephant poo!" Yes, yes, you can....
I was playing a game to start thinking of the difference between non-fiction and fiction with the first grade classes. They were suppose to say one thing that was true about them and one thing that was not. Then we would guess which was the "fiction" thing about them. My examples were all very realistic fiction things....cause the point of the game was to make it hard for us to guess which thing was not true. We had been playing for a little while when one little boy said, "I have a cat and I am a WHALE!" I tried to have a straight face when I asked one of the students which thing they thought was NOT true about this boy (all their hands were up and ready to answer). Yes, they got it right- there is no whale in that class:)
While looking at a picture of my sisters, nephews, nieces, and my dad- one girl said- "He looks more like a grandpa than a dad." I happily informed her that he was indeed a dad AND a grandpa!
In about 20 years her dad will probably look more like a grandpa, too:)
