Now, let me preface this by saying we are in the midst of a Gingerbread Unit right now.
In the morning, when the kids arrive they always do journal writing. Today's prompt was "To make a new friend I would....". Most of the kids wrote 'be nice' or 'play with them'. One of my students brought his up to me and I'm pretty good at reading Kindergarten, but I couldn't decipher it. I asked him to read it to me. He said "I couldn't spell 'ingredients'. And it took me a minute but I did realize I had asked how to 'make' a friend. :)
It was one of those moments where you have to stifle a giggle. They can be soooo literal sometimes!
