Funny Things Kids Say

Today was Show & Tell day at school. Normally this involves the kids bringing in some type of item. The kids are then taught how to talk about the item in English. In the past this involved toys, favorite items, pictures or something culturally Korean. Today was different. The kids spoke about their parent's career/occupation. Most Korean mothers are home makers. This led most of the students to speak about their Father's occupation. Of the 11 kindergarten students only five knew what occupation their Father was in.

Each student took turns answering my first question:

Grey: What is your Father's occupation?
One student: T.V.
Grey: Your Father is on T.V.?
One student: No. My Father watches T.V.

The Eleven students that I teach are divided into two classes. One class is slightly more advanced than the other class. This week two of the students advanced into the higher level class. In the lower level class the students were curious about why the two students left their class and were now in the higher level class (they don't call it the higher level class. They call it Sammy Class).

Girl Student: Teacher.
Grey: Yes?
Girl Student: Why Jasmine in Sammy Class? (Literally, as it is written).
Grey: ... (silence).
Boy Student: Jasmine wanted to be in Henry's class because their going to get married.

If you got anything to add. Please honor us with your knowledge of funny things kids say.

Here's my favorite:

Write a story about 5 baby ducks:

5 baby ducks swam in the pond. A giant octopus monster ate them. They swam in the octopus monster's stomach. Then the octopus monster hiccuped and they came out.

I love this post. :)

I well not take up all of your comment space with funnies that come out of my kids mouths. But I hear something worth writing down everyday. Kids are hilarious! That is the real reason I have so many. I am too tired to stay up and watch SNL, so I just fabricated my very own standup team!

Hee hee hee!

My niece is always saying goofy things... Just the other day, I asked her how old she is. (Four.) Then I told her that she could have one jelly bean for each year. (It was before dinner!) She just looked at me and said, "Oh, I'm sixty-twelve." :D
