Speech Problems

My kids have been so funny recently....here's another one that made me chuckle from yesterday. (Names have been changed to protect the innocent. :) We were sitting on the carpet and one of the little girls from the back row says to me, "Nikki likes Joe because of the way he stinks!" I'm thinking...is he wearing cologne? I've had many a first grade boy come in smelling like they bathed in cologne. Is that what she's talking about? She clarified, "Nikki likes Joe because of the way he thinks." What a difference a "th" makes!

Shot by Cupid

Nope, don't worry! It wasn't me that got shot. Two of my students were standing at my desk this morning and one of the little girls said to the other, "What kind of pills is my sister taking? She hugged me! She never hugs me!" It made me chuckle to think that this first grader thought it was pills. :) I suggested that maybe it was because of Valentine's Day and the other first grader piped up that her sister had probably been shot by Cupid!

Homework That's A 'Peeling'

This looks like your average everyday homework, doesn't it? Actually, it's got to be one of the funniest things a kid has ever handed me. The assignment was to cut out pictures of things that could be bought from a grocery flyer and write an addition story with them. I have this little girl in my class who is very funny and quite creative. She didn't have a grocery flyer so she improvised. She wrote a story about buying a banana, ate one and then taped the peel onto her homework. Tada!

She gave it to me with a big grin on her face and I just laughed. What in the world can you say when a student tapes a banana peel down to their homework and turns it in!
