Not That Pocket.

I asked Destin (preK) to put his name clip in his pocket because it was broken. I didn't know that the only pockets he had were on the shorts that he was wearing under his pants or that he needed to take off his pants to get to his shorts, so, uh, yeah, he took his pants off. Ahhh, prek.

Those Crazy Kindergarteners

Carlos in Kindergarten came to my class for the first time, saw me, and immediately said, "I want to be fat, like you!"

The crazy thing is that I really think he meant it! He had this excitement in his eyes like he knew what he wanted and he had to have it.

It reminded me of another time in the past with the new kindergarten kids: Check THIS out!

Bees at School

There are many bees flying around our school right now and some of the kids are so scared of them! Here's what I told a 2nd grader this morning who was really freaking out:

Bees don't eat people--they go after flowers, so as long as you don't look like a flower, you'll be safe.

MRS. MONROE: Here you go, you can put this paper inside your desk.
HOME SCHOOLER: What's a desk?

2nd Grade Letter of Apology

Dear Mr. Bowers,

I am sorry that I raised my big mouth at you. I will be more good in your funny classroom. My paronts and Mrs. Williams talk to me about being respectfully. After all you are the coolest teach!

Thank you for accepting my apology.

New Restrooms!

Upon my return to school, I noticed that we have new restrooms outside in the temporary buildings. That is a welcome sight because the old ones were nasty! That didn't stop the kids from playing in them, though. I always find footprints on the toilet seat because the boys love to climb. Finally, I decided to take a picture of a footprint to do a little investigating and, sure enough, I found the culprit--it was Keyden! In fact, he was so excited to see his matching footprint, he quickly admited that he was one of the kids climbing! Gotta love those investigations.
