Kindergarten quote - Just when you think they get it

My class had been working on graphing all sorts of information for weeks. We voted on our favorite cereals, tv shows, games. Each time we took a poll, we would convert the information into a graph. I felt confident that they all understood the idea that information could be shown in this form.

I asked my students, "How could you show me the following information? Fifteen students like hamburgers.  Ten students like hot dogs."

One little girl raised her hand with confidence and asked,  "You want us to giraffe it?"


  1. You gotta love kids and the stuff they come up with.

    I was helping my son review 1960's American history.

    Me: Who was the first man to walk on the moon?

    Him: Neil Gaiman

  2. Suzan, cute!

    I love when people share their own quotes!
