Teacher Shares Hilarious, Sweet and Prophetic Things Her Young Students Have Said Out Loud

by Ariana

Kids are wild. They're in a league of their own. 90% of what they say is just kid stuff. It's tv shows, and asking for snacks or singing songs... but that other stuff. The 10%. The little gems they come out with when you very least expect it. That stuff is gold.

A school teacher in New York City, Alyssa Cowit, was so entertained by questions and comments from her students that she decided to start an Instagram @LiveFromSnackTime, to remember all the amazing things her students said. Alyssa has explained that she wants adults to understand that kids often have great insight, immense humour and highly intelligent observations about the world around them. She started the page in 2015 and had over 100,000 followers and even a book.
