out of the mouths...

The school year is in full-swing and boy do I have an eclectic group.  Already, I've heard and read some of the funniest and sweetest things in my classroom.  Seriously...it's these kinds of things that keep me going on the rough days.

First, I gave a little survey to my kiddos at the beginning of the year to give them an opportunity to tell me a little bit about themselves. (Excuse the incorrect punctuation and spelling at times...just keepin' it real! :)

One of the questions said:
Is there anything else you want to share?

One response:
Yes that I'm looking forward to a great year!
(love her enthusiasm!)

Another response:
I have 6 people in my family.  I have a big black dog.  I wanted you to be my teacher.  Love, N
(too sweet!)

Another question asked:
Do you have pets? If you do, tell me about them.

I have 4 dogs there all crazy but not our old dog Happy.  2 cats that KILL ME for food and my humble hedgehog.
(I had no idea hedgehogs could be humble. :)

Another funny quote came during a work time as the kiddos were working at their tables.  Somehow the conversation at one table turned to talking about God in school and who goes to church.

Boy:  I don't go to church.

Girl:  Well that explains a whole lot.

(Haha.  Can you tell it any more like it is?!)

When grading beginning of the year pre-assessments for math, one of the questions stated:

Explain how you solved Problem 5c.

Out of pure nervousness!

(Gotta love the honestly.)

Pin It!
