We are finally really into the swing of things in first grade and I'm loving it! The kids have matured so much from last year which makes them even more lovable. Honestly, there is not child that I do not love. There's not even really one big problem child. I can't pick a favorite. It is great. They are a great group of kids. They've learned so much already and I love that feeling. I love knowing that I've already taught them something.
That being said, I thought I'd share some of our funnies.
-One student tells me "He told me he was going to kill me." So, I asked that student if he said that. His response, "Yes, but I said I was sorry." (I love how they think sorry should fix every problem.)
-We are standing outside for dismissal, it's 85 degrees outside, one student has on his heavy winter jacket, complete with fur lined hood. It took 5 minutes to convince him to take it off so he didn't have a heat stroke.
-Yesterday I wore a short beaded necklace. One little boy raised his hand and said, "Mrs. J, can you take that necklace off? It is going to choke you."
-During lunch, one of the students gets in trouble for running. Then another student tattles that the student in trouble is saying bad words. Well, if you get in trouble at lunch, you sit out at recess for 10 minutes. He did his time for running and we were visiting. I was just going to leave the bad word offense out of it, as I've learned bad words to a first grader are not always really bad words. But, he told on him self. What was he saying? "Penis."
-The students are sitting at their desks doing an assignment. One of them raises his hand so I go to see what he wants. He says, "Well....can I sing." (So totally random)
Oh, how I love what I do. I wouldn't trade it for all the money in the world.
