Don’t you just love lnnocence?

16 Apr

Today at school we had a storm.  This is not unusual but the way it started was.

My class was out in the playground for our “Outdoor” time session.  I was with a group of kids near the sandpit purchasing an ice cream from the Cold Rock shop (as you do!), when a huge clap of thunder occurred.  My entire class (all 24 of them) stopped what they were doing and ran over to the classroom with a few even screaming.  I was left standing with my “sand” ice cream alone in the playground.

The rain then followed so we packed up and went inside.  As we assembled on the carpet I heard murmurs of “bumping clouds”, “God was angry” and even “giants”. After listening I thought it might best to have a discussion on thunder before we started our next session.


I asked the class if they knew what made thunder.  One little girl raised her hand and said she knew.  She then came up front and went into a great spiel about when the sky becomes crowded with clouds their edges sometimes touch each other which is what makes the thunder noise.  There were a few other nods of agreement from other students in the class, so we decided that it must be what happens.

I do believe I had a smile on my face during this discussion and it made me think that the kids I teach really are sweet and innocent, lucky them!

When was the last time you stopped and thought about what makes thunder?

Today I am linking up with Essentially Jess for IBOT (I Blog on Tuesdays).

    My mother always told me that thunder was just Santa moving his presents around….I still use that as the cause of thunder 🙂 Loved your post xx

    I love to see the world from the perspective of a child – it is always so innocent and literal !
    Have the best day !
