Did You Get That?

During school this morning, while learning about Love of God and using our My Jesus and I flip chart.

Teacher: So, Mary and Joseph lived with Jesus in Nazareth. Joseph was a carpenter. What do you think a carpenter is?

Student: I don't know...(thinking)...A guy who makes carpet stuff for people.

Teacher: Well, yes, carpenter does sound like someone who would do something with carpet.

It's amazing how we forget to teach the little basics sometimes. And, the things we hear and understand aren't exactly the same as our children interpret.

It was good to have a little chuckle on a Monday morning.


  1. That's my girl!


  2. I think she has GREAT reasoning skills already! What a good teacher you must be :)


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
