#sol14 Ever Have This Day?

WRITE. Every day in March write a slice of life story on your own blog. SHARE. Link your post in the comments on each daily call for slice of life stories here at TWT. GIVE. Comment on at least three other slice of life stories/blogs.

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.  :)

  1. Kids do know how to keep us on our toes. Thanks for sharing some very funny stories. Your students must trust you to tell you about themselves this way.
