C. C.: Are those brand new pencils?
Me: Did you get a haircut?
L: Yah. I went to the haircut store. They gave me a sucker!
Another little girl was drawing a picture after she finished her work and said, "Look! A teddy bear with a uni-brow!" Who draws a teddy bear with a uni-brow?
I had another little girl in my class who was developmentally delayed. She was 7, but developmentally she was about 4. She is also a student who I just wish everyone could meet her; she is great! She is student C.C. Another little boy in my class was concerned about her having a boyfriend.
Mason: Ms. Dickens, C.C. says Eminem is her boyfriend.
Me: C.C., Eminem is too old for you. (I was thinking of the rapper, Eminem)
Courtney: Well he is red and chocolaty and he is still my boyfriend. (M&M, not Eminem...oohh.)
During a reading group:
Me: What’s this word?
C.C. : But…like buttocks.
So funny. It's crazy for me to think that they will all be in second grade. Even crazier to think that my class from the year before that will be in third grade. Whoa!
