There are certain things we do NOT want to know.


The telling sharing portion of our morning meeting provides us with many learning opportunities. Take today, for example:


Jack: “I went to the beach last night. It was fun.”


Susie: “I went to Jin-nastiks last night! It was fun!”


Stanley: “My dog was chasing a chickmonk outside and was barkin’, barkin’, barkin’.”


Frank: “My cat is having its U-TER-US removed today. We don’t want it havin’ NO babies."




Um. Well then. Okay. On THAT happy note, let’s begin our centers!

This is why I *love* teaching lower primary school: kids tell it like it is :)

Good thinkin' Frank. Good thinkin' there.

Frank is giving you enough material on his own to keep your blog going for at least 100 scheduled posts?! hehe

Elizabeth @ My Life, Such as it is... said...

This is probably why my Kindergartner doesn't have show n tell time either!

Gigi said...

Oh Frank! Our days would be so boring without him!

Expat mum said...

As the mother of kids who used to share far too much, I'm very relieved they're no longer in kindergarten!

The Empress said...

Oh, I loved this part about being with so many little kids.

Just.loved it.

I miss the crap that kids share in the sharing circle!

Mellodee said...

A kid like Frank can make you smile every single day! What a corker!

OMG! I totally misread this post at first! I thought it was a preclass meeting with your fellow teachers! LOL I was beyond horrified.

Then I realized it was the adorable kids in your class. Totally different story. Whew!

Just be glad Frank didn't say he's having the uterus removed from his pussy.

Eeegaads!

Our Crazy Life said...

Are you sure Frank isn't a little blond girl named Libby and you aren't really in Utah??

Travis Erwin said...

I wanna trade jobs with you.

Part of my sons problems with CP is poor bowel functioning. We regularly have to clean him out, and in 5th grade he proudly told everyone on his communications system "I had an enema" during sharing.

Thanks for stopping by today. HUGE hugs.

And no cat uteruses. Uteri?

Donna said...

At least it was the cat and not the mom!

I'm impressed that U-TER-US gets correct pronunciation. Sorry, jin-nastiks, you're still fighting that uphill battle, alongside li-berry and ps-getti.

Too funny!

When a cousin was that age, we kept making him say 'glass' and 'truck'. I think you can figure out why. ; )

Jill said...

I love what kids tell their teachers ... and more importantly, it's even more hilarious when the teacher TELLS you what your kid said... Must be a blast being a KG teacher... most of the time of course.

Magpie said...

See now, I might have challenged him on the U-TER-US part, because don't they just take the ovaries? But then, what do I know?

tera said...

"Chickmonk". How stinkin' cute is that? I love it when they mispronounce things. Unlike my adult/drunk/crazy callers, who just drive me batty.
