ABC's and 123's

I haven't posted in awhile due to the many things going on with school. In case you haven't heard, I switched from student teaching in 6th grade to student teaching in Kindergarten. Yeah--two completely different worlds.

I would like to share with you apart of my everyday:

"Does anyone have any questions about what to do when you get your paper?"
  • Um--guess what? I have one of those (referring to a DVD case shaped like a rectangle)
  • I have one of those too...and my dad bought me a new one yesterday (referring to the DVD case shaped like a rectangle)
  • I have a dog too (not referring to the DVD case shaped like a rectangle, or anything we had just talked about)

Aside from not knowing what the difference between a comment and a question is, I find myself over-hearing random, hilarious things from these kindergartners:

  • I'm the best at smelling water
  • I knew that way before teacher did
  • I'm going to tell teacher that you just ate your crayon (literally)

And I find myself having to say things I never thought I'd have to say:

  • Everyone needs to keep their hands, their feet, and their mouths to themselves (yes-they were licking/kissing each other)
  • I said "walk" to your table, not army crawl
  • Could you please stop squeezing glue into Katelyn's hair?

Welcome to Kindergarten
