Overheard while volunteering in Zoe’s VPK class last week:
Teacher: Chidren, why is Miss Danielle wearing a hat with feathers?
Child 1: Because it’s Halloween!
Teacher: No, Halloween was last month…
Child 2: Because it’s Hannukah!
Teacher: No, that’s coming up soon but we don’t wear feathers. Because it’s Thanks…
Teacher: Yes! There were two groups of people that came together for Thanksgiving: the pilgrims and the Indians
Child, from India: Like me! I’m Indian
Teacher: Well, these were a different kind of Indians
Child: Were they from India?
Teacher: No, they were from America.
Child, confused: Oh.
