So as we begin a new school year, I am still taking time to get to know my new kiddos. I love first grade for lots of reasons, but one of the best is that this age group says the silliest stuff! Here are some of the quotes from the first two weeks of school:
"I can't use "hanitizer" because I have a cut on my hand."
(when using dry erase markers) "These things smell good. They should make a perfume of this smell."
As a child sees me put on my jean jacket... "great style...that jacket is cute."
During a thunderstorm I was telling the children not to worry because were safe inside a brick building. One child adds (so calmly and matter of factly) "And God is always watching over us to keep us safe."
"How are markers made? I think they are great."
(When asked to read what she wrote) "The "wabbit" jumped up."
These are the things that they have said SO FAR......I can't wait to see what comes with the rest of the year! :)
