Overhead in elementary school...

  1. Overheard in an elementary school classroom during snack time:

    Kid 1: "I do not want Donald Trump to be our president anymore."
    Kid 2: "Me neither. I think Trump is the worst president we've ever had."
    Kid 1: "Yeah. I want the first president to be our president."
    Me: "Do you mean George Washington?"
    Kid 1: nods
    Kid 3 pipes in: "Well he can't. 'Cause he's dead."
    All of this was said very seriously by these kids. They crack me up.

    So funny! I don't have anything nearly as thoughtful to share, just this gem overheard during 5th grade lunch...
    Girl 1: "Ugh, I don't like him at all"
    Girl 2: "Neither do I; his face looks just like a chair"
    ummm...what?!

    My little sister's favorite insult to us when we were young was, "You are such a doorknob!"

    I had two kindergartners with fevers in my room on Monday. I have two rooms within my office--one with a larger bed, one with two little beds for the smaller children. I put each child in a small bed. I hear them whispering to each other and giggling then I hear "hey maybe we can both go in the same bed." So I say "hey guys, stay in your own bed. We don't want to share germs." I get two oks. Then I hear a little whisper "I want to share your germs."

    This needs to be a regular thread 'cause it makes me LOL. And there are a lot of days lately where I really need that!

    I had to assess for injuries after 2 middle schoolers were in a fight about presidential candidates!

    Last school year, my then 7 year old told me that he and classmates had a 'mini rally' against Trump and McDonalds. How random kids are. Wish I had seen it!

    I had some kids giggle about my poster that has Anus on it and I heard some kid said, "That's Donald Trump."

    I honestly almost died... these kids do say the darnest things.

    But so sad, learning and showing respect for authority needs to start early.

    My kinders usually come in twos so they don't get lost (I'm on the other side of the school from where their rooms are)
    I still always ask if they know the way back.

    Yesterday afternoon, right outside my office

    K1:We turned right and then left to get here, right?
    K2: I think so...which way is left again?
    K1: ...I don't know

    Needless to say I walked them back to class after the visit.

    Yesterday there was a pipe leak beneath a 4th grade sink and some of the water made it's way to the kinder classroom directly below. According to the teacher, about 10 drops of water fell, they put a bucket under the leak, the ceiling tile was removed and replaced, no big deal...right?

    Today in the hallway- adorable kinder, clearly on a mission enters the main office: "Excuse me, please. I don't mean to interrupt (inner-up), but I need to have a serious (sear-we-as) talk with (wiv) the principal."
    Nice office lady: Oh, okay buddy. He's in a meeting, but I can ask him to come find you when he's done. What do you need to talk to him about?
    Little dude: "Yesterday (yes-sir-day) there was water in my roof and I'm need to tell him that I was worried about that!"
    Nice office lady: Okay, I'll let him know. He'll probably come find you at lunch.
    Little dude: "Good, good, I'll be waiting"

    He was so freaking serious, it was adorable! Now to find my principal to see how their talk went!

    Omg... I would love of see that! I get kids like that and it's so adorable! I do take them seriously though but in my head I'm wanting to hug them and tell them, good job to speaking their concerns!

    4th and 5th graders waiting in the main office for early dismissal
    4th:Yeah, well, we are almost adults
    5th:I know, but being an adult is like super hard, right?
    4th:No, not really. I mean not as hard as being in school, but you will have to do laundry on Sundays, so that's sort of hard.

    I love these kids!
