It’s been one of those weeks…
Only four days left. I am determined to meet my goal of an entire month of writing.
But what to write?
Then I ran across a private goldmine. A collection of some of the funny things my students (preK to 4th graders) have said over the years, plus a few from my own children.
Finding this little old notebook made me smile today. I hope it makes you smile too.
*Don’t talk with your mouth open.
*Is that you? I can’t see you without your glasses on.
*I have really long legs. They reach my whole body.
*I can’t smell anything, my cold stole my nose.
*I didn’t bite her. Her finger just fell in my mouth.
*Student: Teacher, he called me the “T” word.
Teacher: What did he call you?
Student: He called me TOOPID.
*Here…hold my mud cake. Don’t eat it.
*I love you like a teacher and only sometimes like a mommy.
*I’m trying to make a real picture of you. Can you smile big and make those lines all by your eyes again?
*I’m so glad I have a butt. I fits just right in my chair.
*Sometimes my brain is so smart, my hand can’t keep up with it. (Said by a particularly inspired writer during writer’s workshop.)
*One time I was born in Australia.
*I’m an expert at scribble-scrabble.
*My pee fell out before it told me to.
*When I sing the Good Morning song with you my heart smiles.
