A while back I posted a quote from the Sunday School class I teach. The students range in age from 3 to 6. Thought I would do an update with more quotes. It is so much fun teaching this class! Even though it can be quite challenging, Nick and I can get to laughing so hard because of things that happen in class!
For instance….sometimes after class we play Duck, Duck, Goose. A few weeks ago, one of the little boys tagged Mr. Nick as the Goose. Nick jumped up and started chasing him…..after a few laps (yes, that’s right…plural…Ian kept running) around the small circle, Ian turned around and started chasing Nick! Nick ran the other way…..after a few more laps, he pointed to a blank spot in the circle…”Ian, sit down!” but Ian kept chasing….so Nick kept running. Eventually I think Nick sat down in the blank spot. 😉
Here are some quotes from the past few months!
Megan: (tells story) For real!
Me: (talking about Naaman) So he dipped seven times…..
Megan: He took a shower?
Me: (about Naaman) And after he dipped seven times…what do you think happened?
Grayden: He died?
Megan: (“hiding” behind a cabinet) I found pizza!
Nick: (looks) That’s weird. It’s a real pizza.
Nick: ___, are you paying attention?
Nick: Well, at least you’re honest.
(when the students were hiding and Nick was looking for them)
Nick: (at locked cabinet) Knock three times if you’re in there. (a student bangs on it) Well, one knock. Maybe they’re not here.
Nick: Okay, ___, let’s get off of that.
Nick: (playing kitchen with Ryan and they were the waiters serving us food on trays) Put the pancakes on here. (Pause) Oh, don’t eat them first.
Nick: (when someone near the “drive thru” dropped their tray of food) Uh oh, sir, do I hear the clanging of food?
Nick: (when he opened the door for the children to go play on the playground) Go, run and be free!!!
Elayna: (when playing with play-dough) I want a yellow snowman.
Megan: (shocked) No! Snowmans are white!
Megan: (making something from play-dough) Nick, you’re scared of this!
Nick: Oh, I’m scared of it? Ok. Aah!!! Why is this so scary?
Megan: It just is.
Grayden: (playing with play-dough) Mickey Mouse clubhouse.
Ian: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Good job!
Ian: I am Super Ian!
Megan: (when she was wearing a dress with watermelon on it) How do you like my dress?
Melinda: It’s a very swirly skirt.
Megan: With fruit. And it’s like a map of the kitchen.
Nick: (when pushing children on the swings) You’re going to hit the moon! Boink! You just hit the moon! You made a hole in the moon!
Megan: I did it again!
Nick: You did?? Now there’s TWO holes in the moon.
Nick: Three? All you need is a smile and we’ll have a face.
(Nick is playing puppets with some of the children. The puppets were having a fight. Megan wanted to play house where Nick was the Dad. In the midst of the epic puppet battle….)
Megan: Daddy, do you know I love tomatoes?
Megan: (about a lion) He was like ROAR!!!!!! And it hurts his tail when he does that.
Nick: Did you say?
Nick: I hope today will be more mild than last week.
(Grayden screams randomly)
Megan: When people scream, I go up and down.
Each of the children in class is so precious. I am glad for the opportunity to be working with them. I know that it is a huge responsibility to be working with and teaching children. It can be too easy to lose sight of that. I pray that I will not forget the responsibility…and that I will apply myself diligently in handling the word of God and in praying for their young hearts!
