And the winner of our SuPeRsTiTiOuS FUN Friday is...Jen!!!
He's so cute. He pulled out a slip of paper and handed it to me.
"Who is it?"
"You did it! You won!"
That was one disappointed little boy when I had to explain that the candy wasn't ours and he couldn't have any...
So Jen, I just need your mailing address and I will get this off to you next week. It will go out Tuesday on my day off.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
I'll end FUN Friday with "Out of the Mouths of Babes." I teach Humane Education and I love it. Kids can hit you out of left field with funny things. They keep you on your toes.
In my Dog Bite Prevention class, Max was the cutest little kindergarten boy who was just so enthusiastic about the topic and loved his own dog so much that he had trouble listening without interrupting to add things he thought I should be mentioning. He had interrupted a handful of times and each time his teacher had given him a gentle warning. Then he came out with this gem:
Little Max: "And dogs need lots and lots of water or else they get dehyderated. Like one time my mom played soccer at the park on a Saturday and she forgot her water. She got really dehyderated too."
Little Max (to me): "I'm sorry! I'm just having a bad day!"
How can you be mad at that?
I also had this little gem in Pre-K after class:
"I have a puppy. Her name is Blackie because she's black."
"I have a cat. Her name is Snowball because she's white."
"I'm a very deep sleeper."
Someone just wanted to fit in and that was okay.
From our 2nd Kindness presentation:
Me: "Tell me something kind we can do for our rabbits."
Girl: "Not cut off their feet."
Me: "Yes, they really like to keep those."
Girl: "Because my grandma has TWO lucky rabbits feet."
Boy: "Lucky for HER. Not so lucky for that rabbit."
We hold up a bag of hay in this presentation and my partner had the following exchange - with a second grader.
Mere: "Can anyone tell me what this is?"
Mere: "No, it's not weeds."
Kid: "No. WEED. The kind you smoke." (then he puts his little fingers to his mouth like he is taking a hit off a joint)
And from our 5th grade Responsible Pet Owners presentation:
Me: "There is an operation our pets can have that keep them from doing something. If you can tell me what the operation is called or what it keeps them from doing, I'll give your team 10 extra points!"
Girl: "A hysterectomy."
I gave her the points anyway. She was on the right track.
Boy: "Is that that sprayed and neutered thing?" :-)
Have a GREAT weekend, everyone!
