Funny Things Kids Say

I have been teaching kindergarten for the past few days. They are just so cute! They have said many funny things but I thought I would share a couple of things with you that I actually remember:

I read the book "Put Me In A Book" by Robert Munsch. It's about this little girl who gets stuck in a book and her classmates try different things to get her out. While reading the book, this one SK says "I was once trapped in a book.....for two days."

While on the playground a little girl was digging a hole. I told her that she should dig to Hawaii. Another SK was listening to me say this to her and tells me that he once dug to Florida and it was fun being there. He was totally serious when telling me this.
While in the classroom this SK tells me that she once went to Florida. I asked her when she went and she says "Oh, about 10 years ago." This little girl is 5.

Yesterday there was a JK who had an accident in the bathroom. I got her a change of clothes and she washed up. Then I called the principal and asked for a mop to the kindergarten bathroom. He asks "code yellow?" Yep! They also have code brown which I'm sure you can guess what that means, and code green for vomit :S Lovely.

Today I was teaching about community helpers (police officers, firefighters, teachers, doctors, etc). At the end I asked each kid what they wanted to be when they grew up. A lot of dance teachers and police officers, and one FIRE HYDRANT! I think he meant firefighter :)

They are so cute, glad I'm there for 5 more days!


  1. I love it!! They're the best! We have live-in JK and SK (my 5 and 6 year old) and they come up with the very best stuff!

  2. So sweet! Again, this is why I love volunteering in my daughter's JK/SK class!!! Glad you are enjoying it!

  3. Oh yes, I'm sure living with a kid of that age is so much fun! They are hilarious. The conversations you could have!

  4. haha. kids are so cute sometimes. :)
