Kindergarten students are my favorite. Every year they crack me up and this year is no exception.
During an assessment where I asked a student how milk and water are alike, a little girl made a gesture with her hand as if she were drinking from a cup. You don't get points for that, but I was curious if she could eventually get there with some prompting.
Me: "OK. Can you use your words and tell me what that means?"
Kid: (Stands up and staggers around my office) "I'm SO drunk!"
Me: "Umm... Where did you hear that?"
Kid: "My Dad says that. He drinks beer."
Next sweet Kindergarten moment happened last week while talking with a student about his home life.
Kid: "My mom makes weird noises."
Me: "What do you mean?"
Kid: "At bedtime. She makes lots of weird noises."
Me: "Hmm.. Are you saying you're worried about her?"
Kid: "No... Her boyfriend says I just need to knock before I come in."
All of you parents think it's middle school and high school you need to fear... Au contraire, mon ami. Fear the 5 year old!! They share EVERYTHING and they have no idea they're doing it. Your 5 year old makes my work day so much more entertaining. The downside is that my daughter turns 5 in May. I'm in so much trouble.
