Kinder quote of the day

Student (as he pushes a friend on the tire swing): Look, Mrs. Anderson! I'm pushing him like he's in a tomato storm!

Mrs. Anderson: A tomato storm? Yummy, I love tomatoes! But, he will be all red, won't he?

Student (stomping his foot): No! A tomato storm. You know... like those things that go around and around?!

Happy birthday, Mrs. Anderson!

With the beginning of the school year, I have been very busy -- but I promise to update my blog more soon! I have a wonderful class of 24 little learners... and I can already tell this year is going to be a fun one! For some reason, my kiddos this year have turned me into a "big softie." I've always loved my students, but all of a sudden this year, I'm pushing little ones on the swings, giving more hugs than usual, and playing an occasional game of tag on the playground. I think my class has me wrapped around their fingers...

Today, we celebrated my birthday -- and Mr. Anderson brought us cookies! Every year on my birthday, I ask the students to guess how old I am. I love recording their answers because it demonstrates their lack of understanding of age (which is a blessing!) Here are the guesses (in order!):

14 - 20 - 16 - 15 - 17 - 81 - 18 - 84 - 86 - 87 - 14 - 17 - 11 - 4 - 16 - 17 - 16 - 17 - 18 - 13 - 88 - 19
Too funny!

P.S. -- I'm 25... tomorrow!
