I try to make the sentences I give them a little entertaining, just to get a giggle out of them. Today, I got the giggles!
Me: "Okay kiddos, your first word is 'hump'. A camel has two humps. A camel has one hump. Can a camel have three humps?"
R: "A camel can have zero humps, but then...you have to call him a horse!"
Me: "Hey! That was really funny."
R: "I know! Hehehehe!"
Okay, maybe one of those you had to be there moments...but it made me smile! It was his little snicker that really made me laugh.
Today one of my kids and handed me a present. It was an L.L. Bean catalog her mom had put in the recycle bin. Her mom told her not to, that Mrs. Collins would not want that, but she told her mom that "Mrs. Collins can order sweaters or flip flops!" Her mom insisted that she put it back into the recycle bin but somehow she snuck it into her back pack and proudly handed it to me as she walked into the room.
I can't wait to see her face when my new flip flops arrive at my classroom door!
