Kids Really Do Say These Things

Art lesson in a first grade classroom...

After I'd finished explaining the lesson I gave the students permission to begin creating their art. Kids worked quietly and three hands went up in the air for help.

I went to first child who said, "Is it okay if I put a flower over here?"

I said, "Yes, that's a great spot for a flower."

Then I went to the other child with his hand raised who said, "Can you help me cut this out?"

I said, "Sure, let me show you where to put your fingers and get you started cutting, then you can do the rest."

Then I went to the third child who had waited patiently with her hand raised the whole time I was answering questions and helping. She said, "I like your toes. Are they pink?"

I said, "Yes, I do have pink toenails. Did you have a question about your art?"

She said, "No, now I'm going to get started."
