Effin' Penguins!

We took the kindergartners on a trip to the zoo this week, so naturally we were doing a writing piece about zoo animals. My TA, Laurie, was working with Amaya, who was trying to write "penguin" but had written an F in the word. Laurie asked the girl where she heard the F in penguin trying to get her to realize that there isn't one. Meanwhile, the student I was working with, Jake, said, "F in penguin?! Where's the F in penguin?! There's no F in penguin." Which sounded like, "Effin' penguin?! Where's the effin' penguin?! There's no effin' penguin."

It made my day!

Weather Woes

After singing our weather song during calendar today, we looked outside and decided it was a cloudy day. 
I said, "It looks like it's going to rain." 
Mical's response: "I think the Earf's gonna cry!"

Absolutely precious.
