Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, Knees and Toes

     During circle time in my class, we have been discussing our five senses and naming different body parts. Here is a conversation that took place between a student and myself:

Touching my head, I asked, 
"Can you tell me what this is?"

 the student replied

"No, what's under my hair."

Pausing for only a brief second the child calmly replied
"A possum."

Well, maybe it was a not-so-good hair day after all.

Ha ha ha ha! That is so funny! Where do kids come up with this stuff? I remember teaching simple machines one time and I mentioned levers. A student chimed in...and onions. It took me a minute to realize he thought I said liver! These are the moments that carry us forward.

That is too funny! Kids say the funniest things and usually when I needed a good laugh :)
