Today we were all in a bit of a silly mood. The kids were getting the giggles and we talked about crazy things that could happen. Then, one boy who is usually quite reserved and quiet, walked up to me and loudly said,
“I’ve known that two plus five equals seven since I was a kid!”
I kindly said, ‘You are a kid!’ Only to hear him say,
As he put his hand on his forehead. Poor little guy!
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.
