Funny Kindergarten Moments

I was talking to my former teacher friends yesterday.  They like to call me during the summer and tell me how they are by the pool while I am stuck on the Death Star.  Bitches.

Anyway, it got me thinking about some of the funny moments that happened when I taught Kindergarten.

1.   One of our class projects was an alphabet book. On the day we were working on a the letter “W,” the kids helped me brainstorm a list of w-words to put on the board. Then, each student had to choose a word and write a sentence or draw a picture to go with it. One little girl proudly brought me her paper. She had chose “whiskey,” and the picture was of her father downing a bottle of Jack Daniels.  I told her what a great job she did and that since she did such an awesome job, she could do another W word.  She chose wagon, and I was worried that she might draw her father “falling off a little red wagon”, but she thankfully just drew a cute little wagon.

2.  One day as we were wasting time until the bell rang and I walked the kids out of school, one little girl raised her hand and proudly exclaimed “I have a new baby brother!”.  I was shocked because I know her mother and she was not pregnant and knew that the mother and father were in marriage counseling.  Not wanting to ignore the child I stated how wonderful that was and how she would be a great big sister.  One of the other girls asked “What is the baby’s name?” and the little girl, without missing a beat said “Daddy’s Bastard”.  Yep- I quickly put the brakes on that conversation and started singing songs until the bell rang.  I later found out the father DID have a child with another woman.

3. I had my students scattered around the room one day doing various free-choice and centers-based activities, while I worked with small groups of readers. I noticed three of my boys snickering in the corner, and decided to go over and investigate. It turns out one boy was creating a 9″x12″ book -or maybe it was a magazine- called “Big Boobs.” These were the only words in the book, but there were plenty of illustrations.  Heh!

I should have saved that book so when he gets married, it would end up in his wedding power point presentation.

    You need to post one of these stories every Friday morning to help us get through this last day.  The pregnancy story is classic and I will be laughing about it all day long.  And no one will know why I am laughing which makes it that much sweeter!
