Confusion and kids...
During art class my little student said ‘I’m drawing God.’ I paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.’ Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, ‘Oh, they will in a minute...’
One of my favourite silly incidents was when a kid tried to get a pen from his pocket and then said ‘whoops, it’s in my other pants’. He then stuck his hand inside his pants and pulled out the pen. He was just wearing two pairs of pants for no good reason.
I decided to teach the first graders the classic song ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’. It seemed to go well and we moved on to something else. While absorbed in the new activity the little boy at the front was quietly singing the new song he had just learned, ‘Head, shoulders, cheese and toast, cheese and toast.’ Close enough.
