Student conversations are the best! EES

Two third graders were sitting with me in art today, having the following conversation:

Student A: Did you know that you have this thing in your brain called an umbilical cord?

Student B [rolling eyes, like it was obvious]: Yes, I know.

Me: Huh?  Um, that's the thing that connects mamas and babies before they are born. It was where your belly button is now.

Student A [irritated]: No.  Not that umbilical cord Mrs. Elliott. The other one. The one in your brain.  You know, it's the one that connects your brain to your imagination.

Oh. My. Goodness. Sometimes I think my heart will burst with my love for children.
 Thanks for sharing them with me!

  1. Thanks for being the kind of teacher that listens carefully to children! We all can learn so much from them when we hear what they're saying!
