I don't often share stories of my daily life in Kindergarten, but this one is a must. It happened last week and I am still smiling about it. The names have been changed to protect the identity of my students.
The time is right at morning check-in when two girls approach me prior to doing seat work.
Caitlin: "Mrs. Broeker, Paige and I want to sing a song for you."
Me: "Okay, let's hear it." I'm expecting to hear to a song from the students' music class, when they start to belt out this one...
The girls sing the first seven lines until the "boys blowing up our phones, phones" part. Then they pretty much forgot the rest of the words, but the first half of the song was pretty impressive, I'd have to say.
Me: "Wow! That was some song!" I was a little caught off guard and now I noticed that there are several boys who stopped to listen too.
Dylan: "What does it mean to brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack?"
Me: "Hmmm...I'm not quite sure." Really! I'm not going there with this one.
Ian: (quickly pipes in) "They are meaning something you drink."
I was about to change the subject when Caitlin said....
Caitlin: (matter of fact) "It's licorice."
