It's often the funny little things the kids say that really make our day!
Today, while working on his journal, Grayson was looking around the room and not really paying attention to what he was doing. Carly said, "Grayson, please pay attention to what you are doing." Nadia looked at Carly and said, "Ms. Carly...are you fussing at Grayson?" It was so cute!!
Then Sally's class was talking about what they would like to be when they grow up. Sara said, "I am going to be a rock star." Brooke said, "I'm going to be famous." Ashlee said, "I'm going to be a star." And then Gavin said, "Well, I guess I"ll be the moon!!" And he was so serious! Ms. Sally explained to him that a star is someone famous...he didn't comment...maybe he'll still be the moon!!!
Finally, I was in Ms. Carly's room this morning while she stepped out. The kids and I were watching the guinea pigs. I said, "They have been very loud today. Did you all hear them talking this morning?" Mihir's eyes were huge and he said, "I have heard them make lots of sounds...but I've never heard them TALK!!!"
And this....is why we teach!!!
