Day 21 - Spring and a Funny



My students have been talking about spring.  They have been asking if it's spring yet all throughout March.  Now that it's officially on the calendar, they are asking why we still have snow?  It's tricky to explain to my kindergarten kiddos that Mother Nature missed the spring memo but I'm trying.  All day long, amid the "Do we have to wear our coats?" and the "When can we wear shorts?" comments and questions, I kept thinking about how much we all WANT it to be spring. 

Spring is in my heart
but not in the air
Spring is on the calendar
but not out my window
Spring is in our cabin fever
but not in the weather
Spring is in my heart
but not in the air


And on a totally different, but funny note:

I was helping a student write numbers today.  He has been struggling with the teen numbers.  After writing the third one together, we had the following conversation.

Me: Which number comes next?
C: Fifteen.
Me: That's right!  How will you write that?
C: Down.

Oh my.  I couldn't help but laugh.  They are just so literal, aren't they?  Thanks for the laugh today C!

  1. So sad that spring didn't get the memo. Great poem, maybe it will bring some warmer weather. Thanks for the funny things kids say.
