Coaching guided reading. That is what I was SUPPOSED to be doing. But the two little boys on the computer were distracting me in this kindergarten classroom. They were reading books on their computers. They were wearing headphones. The headphones made them talk loudly. Their conversation captured my attention.
Boy 1: I wish they were still alive. Don’t you wish they were still alive?
Boy 2 continues to read his dinosaur book. He is ignoring Boy 1, or he can’t hear him because of the headphones he is wearing.
Boy 1: My mom says when we go up to heaven, there will be dinosaurs.
Boy 1: Maybe they will be nice to us. That will be so nice. (Wistful sigh)
I. Love. Kindergarteners.
