One of the best parts of teaching first grade are the first graders.
They are a lot of work, but they are a lot of fun!
And they say the darndest things!
On Friday I was explaining to the 1st graders that we would be having 4th grade buddies. I told them what fun things we would do with them and how they were so excited to be their buddies.
So I started telling them the names of their buddies. (Now, keep in mind this is my 1st year at this school and I don't know any of the kids here and since I didn't get last names, I didn't even know if any of them were siblings). Every once in awhile I would ask if they knew the buddy who they were assigned. None of them said yes.
Then it came to this one 6 year old boy. Upon telling him the name of his 4th grade buddy he shouts "Yeah!"
I'm thinking...yeah means he knows this boy. So I asked, "Is he a friend of yours?"
"No," he answers, "I just like the sound of his name."
Seriously! This is what this 6 year old said! Are kids getting older these days or what? lol
