We asked kindergarten teachers in our Teacher Discount Club Facebook Group and other teacher groups on Facebook to share the funniest things that have happened in their classrooms. Their responses were hilarious, so get ready for a good laugh. Here's what they said...
One of my students told me "I’m drawing a picture of you Mrs. G." I responded, "Oh good. Make me skinny!" He looks at me. Looks at the picture. Looks at me again, and says “I think I’d better start over!” I died laughing. - Regina H.
I have a student who has been very shy all year and is just coming out of her shell. We were playing with play dough and it was time to clean up. As she was putting it away she just starts to uncontrollably giggle. She says, "My play dough farted." I had to giggle with her. It was greatness. - Tina S.
Several years back the kids were playing with the farm animals. One little boy knocked over a horse and yelled “Oh no! He’s not breathing... give him VCR!” - Deb. C.
I have a highly intelligent child in my room and one day he said something he shouldn't have. When I called to tell mom, I whisper spelled the word into the phone. He looks straight at me and says "You don't have to spell a d-a-m thing for me because I can spell" to which I wanted to reply "Well you didn't spell that correctly!" But I refrained - Heather S.
One of my boys came up to me after using the restroom and said, "Teacher I don’t need to wash my hands since I didn’t need to point my peepee in the toilet." -Alison F.
We had made it to the last day of school, after counting the each day as part of our math, a sweetie told me "That's a lot of days! And you didn't even die!" All I could say was, "No, I survived" - Laura B.
One of my girls was late and I asked her why she was late. She told me that mommy and daddy were in the shower a long time and wouldn't get out. - Melissa D.
In the middle of a reading group a little girl stopped and said: "I'm never going to drink beer or tequila when I grow up because then you get in trouble. It's ok though, the policeman says mommy can get the blowy thing out of her car soon." - Katie M.
I had a student break down and cry during snack. I asked him what was wrong, and he said: "I don't want to eat cantaloupe! They're so cute when they run!" He thought cantaloupe came from antelopes. - Katie M.
A student didn't know what a peacock was during a zoo read aloud. When I showed the picture, he said, "Oh wow, that's a nice bird but the name of it has a nasty word in it..." I got really nervous for a second and he continued, “It starts with the word pee, that's kinda gross, right?" Phew! Saved by the innocence! - Aja O.
A few years ago we were twisting crepe paper to make tentacles for an octopus. One little boy called out "Mrs. F. I have lost one of my testicles." I think he meant tentacles. - Gena F.
It was the first day of school. I saw a kindergartener whose brother had been in my class a few years before. He stopped me and exclaimed, “I know you, you’re Ms...Ms...Ms. America”. No I’m not, but I’ll take it. - Janet R.
I was reading a book about animals and asking students what sound each animal makes. The students would, moo, bark etc. I came to the page with a hedgehog on it, and I asked the question. I got lots of blank looks, then one little boy says, “prick, prick, prick.” - Michelle T.
I was teaching in a rural area and one of my girls came in so excited to tell, "I saw two donkeys playing leapfrog on the way to school!" I had her tell the story to all my coworkers. It’s the funniest thing I’ve ever been told. - Kari P.
It was my 40th birthday and I was sitting at the lunch table with my students and one little boy across for me said "Mrs. W., how do you feel now that your life is half over?" - Sasha W.
I do door duty every morning. I always tell every student good morning. One day a kid tells me, ”Good morning. You have snow breath.” I asked “What?” She replied, “You know, snow breath! And exhales a long breath.” It was so cold you could see your breath. Snow breath! I love it. - Sherri C.
A boy came back to school after being out for three days. When he walked in I said, "Welcome back, were you ill?" He quickly answered, "No, I was sick." - Lauren M., kindergarten
I worked in a tiny K-5 rural school, with a teaching principal, two regular educators & multi-age classrooms. The principal would hand out paychecks on Friday. One of my students asked, "What's that?" I say, "It's my paycheck." My student replies, "Oh, you work somewhere?" - Deborah B.
