As I’ve said here before — I LOVE working with kids. They keep me in stitches and what makes them even more hilarious is that they’re not even trying to be funny. Just today, in Kindergarten, one little girl cracked me up and I thought I’d share.
The teacher was in the process of calling small groups of students to choose their centers. In order to avoid a stampede at the white erase board, she gives each group a chance to get up from the carpet, line up and make their selections by placing their Popsicle sticks; then she calls the next group. While she was doing this, she and I briefly discussed a concern we had over a student who had been absent for several weeks.
At this point, only one group was left. All of the sudden, one bright-eyed and anxious little girl, who was sitting on the carpet, clears her throat and says “A-hem” – exactly like an adult would, to get someone’s attention. TOO FUNNY!
