Various Hilarity

Madison: "You know why I'm smart?"
Me: "Why?"
Madison stated matter-of-factly, "Because my mom got me a laptop."

Amaya: "I'm going to be a monkey for Halloween because I love bananas."
Keep in mind it is the end of March, and we weren't talking about Halloween or bananas nor were there any bananas or monkeys to be seen.

A Kindergarten take on Technology

My smartboard/computer was really slow today during calendar.

Me: "It's going to take a minute before the weather comes up. The computer is slow today."
Laura: "It's sleepy."
Emma: "Maybe it didn't sleep good last night!"

Mmm...Cat Food

Today we read Dr. Seuss' I Wish that I had Duck Feet. After discussing the advantages of each animal part, the kids had to come up with an animal part they would like to have and justify why. We went over it orally before they were expected to illustrate and explain their "Which-What-Who" (themselves with their new body part) to me.

Me: "Donnie, what animal part do you wish you had and why?"
Donnie: "I wish that I had a cat head, so I could eat cat food."
Haley: "I already eat cat food!"
Samantha: "I do too!"

I wonder if they eat the wet or crunchy stuff!

Marriage Proposal

I think I received my first kindergarten marriage proposal today!

Samuel: "I just wish you could turn into my wife."
Of course this happened while he was holding my hand on our way out to the buses at dismissal time. Too bad he wasn't 3 years earlier! :o)
