On days like this I just have to share…. I learn so much in the elementary school playground! FOR REAL!
I was standing there kid watching when I hear a girl say, with the most serious face in the whole wide world…..
“Did you know if you kiss a boy, your teeth will fall out?!?”
Her face when she said this to her friend was truly priceless. She 100% believes this to be a fact and for all I know, it’s true. Maybe your teeth do fall out if you kiss boys… I need to convey my belief, especially when I’m her teacher. She brightened my day and there is NO DOUBT in my mind that I will remember that exact moment forever.
I learn so much on the playground! Second, third, and fourth graders are so knowledgable. They have so much to share with the world and their hearts full of dreams make my heart feel alive! My job has been super stressful and I pray every day that I can be the best teacher I can for them. They deserve it, especially for comments like that. :)
I heard this joke 9 times today. I seriously counted after the first 3 times…
Student- “Wanna know how to make Lady Gaga cry?”
Mrs. H.- “Yah. How do you make Lady GaGa cry?”
Student- “Poker face” “Get it?! Poke her face, poker face– like her song, you know.”
I have to admit I thought it was funny. I laughed…. all 9 times. ;)
