Kids say the nastiest things

The other day, I assigned a journal page for literacy. I had the kids finish the phrase "In winter, I like to..."

I went over to little five-year-old girl Z and read what she wrote: "In winter I like to have hot cockcock."

I smiled and said that was very good, but what two letters make that first sound in chocolate? And isn't there an L in there somewhere?

It ended up as chocklock.


That's funny, but a boy in another K class wrote on his paper, "I LIK PENIS." And that was intentional. (He meant like, not lick, which was a source of debate among us teachers afterwards.) Give me my sweet, naive kids any day; those other teachers have a bunch of six-year-old hooligans.
