Pixie had a couple snow days that led me to have those days made up for the families. So, I reminded the children that I would see them tomorrow for a make up day. One little girl told her grandma that they need to stop at the store on their way home because she needed MAKE-UP for school.
A boy was itching his foot under his boot and I asked him if he was okay he said, " Yeah, my flippin sock is bugging me."
When talking about firemen and their duties one little girl very convincingly informed us her Mommy use to be a firefighter... Her mom is a teacher, always has been.
During snack time near Super Bowl time, I had football shaped Oreos, one girl told me she only likes the round ones.
A four year old went home and told her Mom that I made her "write letters that were NOT in her name!"
One little girl told her Mom that I "gave her a headache."
A four year old was playing with a block, pretending that it was an airplane and he asked, "Can you put batteries in this to make it go faster?"
We were making a craft for April Fool's Day and we asked some of the children what they thought it looked like and here were their guesses...
It's a Cat in the Hat, a saxaphone, a bone, a dog, a sock, a sock, It's an elephant, a kangaroo.
Well it turned out to be a bunny on one side and a duck on the other.
A four year old boy walked by I said, "Boy, someone smells good," he looked at me and said, " YEAH, I smell like a MAN!"
We introduced subtraction to several children. One four year old told me, "That's easy! I am doing times tables at home." Yes, he breezed through it.
We always give stickers on the papers they do and this day the stickers were "Scratch n sniff." The child picked one and put it on his paper, we told him to scratch it to smell, he said "Why does it itch?"
