There are certain days when I absolutely LOVE teaching First Grade! My kids crack me up with the things they say. We have been talking about money the last few weeks and we talked about how people use different types of money in different parts of the world. So today we were standing in line and I overheard these 2 kids talking about money. Now mind you that this was an entirely serious conversation.
Kid 1: What if we didn’t have real money and we had to use candy instead of money?
Kid 2 (dead serious): We can’t do that. If we did that than instead of living in America we’d have to live in……..CandyLand.
Kid 1 (seriously thinking this over): Oh.... yeah....
I love my students (99% of the time!!). Being a teacher is a GREAT job!!
