No further questions, your Honor

Several of Nate's kindergarten friends came to me upset that "someone" had sat on him - though there was disagreement over who exactly that was.  I decided to check with Nate himself, who was apparently unfazed by the incident and was happily playing tag.  When I stopped him to ask who sat on him, he called over his shoulder (as he ran off to continue his tag game): "I don't know.  I couldn't see.  Someone was sitting on me".

Quote of the day

Quote of the day (said after a pile fell from his desk): "I hate gravity".

Happiness is...

Happiness is having a toothless, smiling 6 year old use his entire arm to wave to me.

Excuse me??

I was teaching a new reading game to a group of Kindergartners when one little boy casually mentioned: "Ty and I don't need the directions".  I assumed they had already played this particular game and went on to finish my explanation to the rest of the group when I heard him add: "cause we're boys".

Proof that the fact men don't ask for/read directions is biological?  Perhaps.

Mom voice

Kids were having a hard time settling down during math.  I used my "mom voice".  They settled down.
