This is How We Roll in Kindergarten

Oh, how I love the things kindergartners say and do. There so many joyful {and hilarious} moments that are unique to working with 5 and 6-year-olds.

Here is a collection of some of my favorite things teachers have shared on KindergartenWorks facebook page. The cute and funny things said by their own class of kinders.

Because after all, this is how we roll in kindergarten…

Enjoy the light-hearted moments from other K teachers like yourself. There are so many precious, funny, and sometimes mental-jaw-dropping moments – I’m so glad you’re willing to share a snippet from your week with us!

I reminded a kinder that he forgot to tidy up his area. In his best attempt to use our vocabulary word “sidetracked” he giggled and said “oh sorry I got subtracted Mrs. Cox”.

He just shook his head and laughed so hard. He was so excited that I would notice him using that big vocabulary word… – T.C

Everyday when I send the kids off to work on math (so I can pull groups as needed, check in, etc) I play some music in the background (usually a loop of chimes on the Smartboard for math) and sometimes I remind them to be sure they can “hear the chimes“…”chat but work quietly enough so you can hear the chimes” (whatever the prompt…) so today, after I went to turn on the Smartboard music, a little one goes “Mrs. Langdon, I like our other music, why do you like this CHINESE music, you play the CHINESE music everyday at math and I don’t even like CHINESE!”….oh Buddy, “chimes” I said “chimes”…not Chinese!!!
