Two Writing Teachers have written about the Slice of Life on their blog. Head on over and check it out!
So it's a rainy day in Iowa. Even through the rain it was a great day of learning and growing together.
Here's the last mesh of conversations I had/heard at the end of the day:
Kid: "Mrs. Limback-you know why it rains?"
Me: I think so. Why?
Kid: The Guy...You know...Up There...(Points upward)
Kid 2 (in an overarching screaming-type voice): You Mean God?!?!?!?!?!?
Kid: Yeah, He's crying because people are making bad choices.
Me (As lightly as I can as we are working on dismissal): That's a very interesting thought. Sometimes people like to read about the water cycle to learn more about why it rains. (Turn around to go find a book. Kid 3 is standing right behind me.)
Kid 3: I had a photosynthesis reaction in my teeth today!!!! See?!?!?!?!?
(Yep-that's silence. What do you say to that?)
Then then bell rang.
I'm still giggling over the awesomeness that was this mesh of a conversation.
And we need more science. :)
