Working with kids=Never a dull moment!

February 18, 2014
Today I'm bringing you two jokes thought up by a kindergarten student that I sub quite frequently.

**Joke 1: Why does glue have an "ew" in it?  Because it's gross, duh!
**Joke 2: What did the toilet say to the toilet paper?  I'm going to eat you!

I don't know about you, but I thought these jokes were pretty funny, so I shared them with everyone at work.  When I told my boss the jokes, he told me his daughter's first joke that she thought of at age 4, which was, "What did the snail say when it was riding on the turtle's back?  Wheeeee!"

I was going through some old blog posts from when I taught in Korea, and while there were no actual jokes involved, I've gotta say that the following made me smile...

**Elizabeth and I were reading a story about a dog drooling, so I told her what it meant and then told her that sometimes I drool for cake.  She nodded and told me that she understood and then proceeded to use the word in one of her own sentences, which was, "I don't drool for cake like you, but I drool for Jino."  HA!  (Jino was another boy in the class.)

**I was out sick and my close friend at the time had to sub one of my classes.  His arms were very hairy, especially from a Korean's point of view.  Jimmy went up to my friend and asked him, "Are you a bird?"  My friend gave my student a confused look and asked him why he would say that.  Then Jimmy responded, "You have feathers all over your arms."  I guess Jimmy had never seen arm hair that was that long, so he thought my friend was growing feathers.  When my friend explained that it was just his arm hair, another one of my students told him that there was no way he could grow hair that long on his arms and that he really grows it out of his head, cuts it off, and then glued it on his arms.  I think I could laugh at that one until the day that I die! 

I just love the funny things kids say and do!  They keep me entertained for sure.

Two of my funniest goofballs kind of attacking me!

    1. Lol, the latest funny thing that happened to me was that I helped a kid open her milk at lunch and she said,"Thanks. I like your earrings." I told her I wasn't wearing any earrings and she said, "Oh, well, then I like your necklace." HA!

  5. That is sooo adorable, I love that photo. When I was doing my degree I did some work in a kindergarten class and the kids were sooo cute. It was the beginning of the school year and they were so timid, they clung to me like glue and just followed me around lol.

    1. That is an older photo way back from the first year I taught in Korea. Those were my first students! Oh yeah, I could see kids following you around, especially when they are new to school.

    1. The kid that told me that joke knew that I thought it was funny, and now he keeps following me around telling me jokes that are not jokes at all because he wants the same reaction, hahaha.

  9. Kids are so cute because they have no filter. They just say whatever crosses their minds. My friend has 3 girls and I love it when she posts the cute things her kids say to each other.

    1. I love the way kids word stuff, too. We talked about American symbols and one of the assignments was for students to write two sentences on what they learned about the eagle. One girl wrote, "The eagle is a United States of America bird." (Only the sentence was even cuter because it had lots of invented spelling!)

  10. Yup, kids amuse me. Yesterday my six year old looked at my feet and was like, "Why do you have hair on your toes? Are you part boy?" Clearly I need to shave...
