Mrs. Dillard is having a linky party! Out of the mouth of babes is the theme.
As a substitute, I hear all sorts of things but darn it, I don't write them all down. There are some of course that I am happy I wrote down.
This was in a 3rd grade class:
Me: What's a synonym for big?
S2: Ginormous isn't a word.
Me: Actually, I just read an article in the paper that they just added it to the dictionary.
S1: How do you know?
S2: She's a teacher, she knows everything! (don't I wish! Lol).
Here's another one, fifth grade.
S: Where's the 'r' in 'Mrs.?"
Me: I don't have one, I'm not married.
S: Oh. When are you getting married?
Me (under my breath I muttered): When I find the right guy.
S (super hearing heard it): When will that be?
Me: I would like to know that too!
3rd grade class learning celebrations of the world in December. On a KWL chart, under W: " Why does Santa bring presents at night, not in the morning?" I thought that was precious.
And same chart, different kid, under W. "What is in my box under the tree?
Thought those two were appropriate as today is Christmas in July :) So cute!
Don't forget to check out her linky party!
