I had a hard time not laughing out loud  as I listened to my little charges talking during centers today. "Why didn't the Easter egg cross the street ?" said one. "Why" replied his friend. "Because he didn't want to get smashed." said the first. Lots of giggles followed this exchange. A third child piped in "Can you eat cracked Easter eggs?" "No way!" replied the first. "They have germs all over "em". "Well, that's no big deal" said the other. "You can't taste germs!" Then a fourth child piped in "Have you ever seen an Easter egg hatched?" "No!" "Nope!" two of the children replied. "Me either" said the fourth child.

And then it started again. "What bunny doesn't come out at Easter?" said one. "What?" said another. "The sleeping ones." which was followed by a burst of giggles. I love working with little kids!

    Ha! There is nothing like the silly jokes that kids make up! Then they laugh so hard, that's the best part, I think!

    It is so much fun to watch children at play and hear the funniest things and sometimes not so funny. This one was very cute. Thank you for sharing.

    Love it! I love when they play like they are me, and I hear them say things just like me getting on to each other..

    Alicia,

    I forgot about taking the plants unit pictures. I have to go back over to school tomorrow (we are on break now until Monday) so I will get it out then.

    Debbie,

    I will miss reading your blog. You truly are my favorite blogger but I truly understand. I need to get moving myself...as in exercise!

    I know Kristin. If I were you, I would start keeping a journal now of some of those funny sayings. Don't do what I did and try to remember them all when you are old..lol

    These made me laugh for a few reasons:

    1) Some aren't funny, but the fact that they laugh makes them funny
    2) There are so many things little kids just don't understand, so their own theories are funny
    3) Okay, the cracked Easter egg on the street joke was funny!

  24. VKT // April 1, 2010 at 8:31 AM  

    Theresa,

    You are right. Their infectious laughter is what makes it funny. Bless their little hearts.

  25. Jenny // April 1, 2010 at 10:15 AM  

    My kind of jokes! I actually get the punch lines in them.

  26. VKT // April 1, 2010 at 10:53 AM  

    Lol Jenny! I am glad to hear you say that. I was wondering if I had been teaching kindergarten too long.
