One day= Two laughs

Download wordart here

One of my students came in today and had the word "does" on his word ring. He didn't know the word and before he could complete his work he came to me and asked what the word was. Being the kind, wonderful teacher that I am I told him what the word was and even used it in a sentence for him...

ME: This is the word does. What does your father do?

He didn't get that I was just using the word for him and actually answered the question by saying...

"Nothing, my mom does everything." lol!

At the end of the day, I reminded the kids that we would be celebrating the 100th day on Thursday and told them not to be late for school. I told them that we would be going on a walk and taking 100 steps. I asked them to think about where our walk would take us and how far we would travel in our 100 steps. Everyone quietly stared at me except the same boy who had the word does on his word ring. He had no idea where our 100 steps would lead us, but he had lots of questions...

"What? How are we going to do this? What if we get tired? Are we allowed to rest? Can we bring water?"

To truly appreciate his questions, you have to read them out loud very quickly using the high squeaky voice that only a five year old boy can make.

He didn't seem to appreciate my laughter.

  5. This brings back memories. I taught kindergarten for over 25 years and the 100th day was a huge celebration. We had such fun with all the things we did to 100.
