Recent Facebook posts by elementary school friends reveal a "different" side of teaching, which I don't often see:
Kindergartener #1: "Ms. Teacher! How do you color so good?"
Kindergartener #2: "Because she's magic!"
"Sooo, Ms. Teacher, if it's winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and summer in the Southern Hemisphere, but it's still Christmas there...won't Santa get really hot when he goes to Australia?"
After being told that "hug time" was over and that they needed to sit and do their work, one girl said, "I wish we went to hug school where we could hug all day long."
Ms. Teacher, so do you just party all night long?"
"What? No, why do you think that?"
"Because you're young!"
Small child quote of the day: "Smell my leaf!"
"Ms. Teacher, next time can you play more music that's like from modern times? No offense!"
"Sooo, Ms. Teacher, an appliance is just like a machine that does things for you so that you can make it your slave?"
Child 1: "Ms. Teacher, are strawberries made of oranges?"
Ms. Teacher: "No, Silly!"
Child 2: "Ms. Teacher, you are made of mud!"
