While at our sports carnival on Friday, parents and siblings were cheering on their children in the relay races. One sibling, cheered for their brother in a rather, interesting way…
“Go, Jack, shake ya tail feather!”
On a loud, hot, busy day in an open, large space outside, a roar of laughter erupted!
As we were half way through a mathematics task today, one particular child finished quickly and did a wonderful job. I said to her, ‘Well done, Zelda, you’ve tried so hard and done a great job! Keep it up.’ She jumped up, followed me to my desk and said,
“Oh Miss Rainbow, I just love having you as my teacher.”
Probably one of the cutest things I’ve ever been told. I do wish, as adults, we weren’t as reserved and ‘scared’ to just say what we are thinking/feeling. Kids just tend to come out with it (good, bad or ugly). They don’t hold much back. I love that.
