Kids Say: 1.1

I thought I’d combine my next Kids Say post with my 5 for Friday for this week…

As I said in my first Kids Say post, I’m obsessed with kid cuteness and love sharing the funnies they say.  And since not everyone wants to hear about it, I’m blogging about it.  You’ve been warned!

1.  On our field trip last month, one of my girls asked, “Mrs. Shaddock, do you know why I’m wearing my Monitor Elementary shirt and not my Turnbow shirt?”  “No.  Why?”

What can I say? Girl’s got some crazy hair.  Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right?

2.  Same girl.  Same field trip.  {This girl was on top of her game that day!} Our bus driver was had the radio playing on the way to see our show.  Prince’s Raspberry Beret came on.

 Of all the songs in the world, I had no idea Raspberry Beret was it…

3.  So, I was following behind a second grade class on the way to an assembly one day when I overheard a precious conversation.  A little boy had a tooth that had come out and was bleeding.  He was holding a kleenex over it.  He kept checking it and said, “It just won’t stop bleeding.” The second grader behind him said, “I know just what to do….”

He proceeded to tell him the Bible story he had learned at church…Joshua and the Battle of Jericho. “They walked around the first time.  Nothing happened!  They walked around the second time. Nothing happened!” he continued to tell him about each of the six times, getting more excited with each time.  “But on the 7th time, they went around and the wall came down, Dude.  Really! It did! So all you have to do is keep praying and the 7th time it will work!”

Oh, the sweet faith of a child.  It just warms my heart!

4.  And finally, yesterday…This sweet girl walked in saying, “I really wish my dad were still a doctor.” {Her dad never was a doctor!} “Why?”

She continued, “And this is going to be the 4th time I’ve had it!!”  5 minutes later, her BFF had rechecked her throat and it had turned all white.  After lunch it was all pink. “This is getting serious now, Mrs. Shaddock.  I think I really need to go see the nurse!”

5.  How’s this for a random number five?  I just posted my new Common Core Fairytale Unit in my TPT store.

143 pages of weekly visual plans, daily detailed lesson plans, Common Core standards tied to every activity in literacy, social studies and math!  All the materials you need and photos too!

This is a class favorite…even for my boys.  They especially love our end of unit Fairytale Ball that our grade level puts on.  Follow me on Facebook or on Bloglovin‘ to catch all the details of how this unit plays out in our classroom this year!
