Words of Kindergarten #SOL21

Every Tuesday I blog and share at twowritingteachers.org. Teacher writers share and comment on at least 3 posts.

Almost there.

My students’ last day was Friday. Today I am in an all day reading curriculum training. My last day is Thursday which means my full time writer schedule begins on Friday. I cannot wait.

One of the many things I love about kindergarten is the way my students have their own lens and ways of describing things. I keep a log of things that my students say so I can remember.

I started adding a section in my newsletter called: Overheard in Kindergarten

Here are some phrases I wrote down the last week:

  • If we had ice cream hair we could just lick our heads.
  • Overheard at the kitchen center: I am making scrambled berries with potato sauce and purple ketchup.
  • Lull-a-pie (lullaby)
  • “Your hair is excited for Thursday”
  • “These are my July shoes.” (They are red, white, and blue.)
  • “I have to sharpen my eraser.”
  • “Push me to South Carolina!” (on the swings)

There were a lot of great things about this school year despite its massive amounts of pivots but I am ready to recharge and move forward. I know I am not alone in this sentiment.

Here’s to summer!

I will miss the words of my kindergarteners and am glad I have a document to school through to hear their words when I miss them.

  1. This quote is absolutely priceless – “If we had ice cream hair we could just lick our heads.” It is a joy to be in the presence of these creative thinkers. Perhaps your kindergartner may have hit on a fabulous new shampoo fragrance – ice cream! Happy summer!!

  2. “If we had ice cream hair we could just lick our heads.” I actually laughed out loud when I read this. I think this may be the best kid statement I have heard all year! I love to listen to the conversations of my students and my grandchildren. Kids see the world so differently. Not only do they give us a reason to chuckle, but if we listen closely enough, we can also learn a lot from them. I love this post!

  3. How precious to save their beautiful words and share them. I love that you have this as a part of your newsletter. My son’s preschool teacher compiled a list of things said throughout the year and we still look back through it and laugh.
