Out of the mouths of Students
This is a Sunday rerun!
See Chari for more Sunday reruns!
Today I was playing around with my “Book In a Box” as I call my box of things I saved from when I was teaching school. I saved items that the kids wrote or said that amused me. I am in the process of categorizing into Things they said, Things they did, and well just Things.
Here are some of the things they wrote. I’m telling you right now, these kids were brilliant! I taught them everything they knew.
All trees in Washington came from seeds that came from airplanes.
The governor of Texas has the right to paint his employees.
When the war broke out, they turned the mission into a fart.
Covered wagons were called prairie schooners because they were used to schoon the prairies.
Three characteristics that define a society are TVs, Parties, and Fashion. (The answer was supposed to be; organized religion, an established government, and a common language- but she was close!)
Some people in Taiwan right now are ball-headed.
If you ever get the chance to see sharks reproduce, take it!
Germany’s religion is similar to ours. They have a big building in the city.
Abe Lincoln got his face on our pannies.
I picked Wyoming for my state because it is easy to draw.
If a possum knows its going to lose, it just “aks”
dead and most of the time it works!
Orca whales have pimples around their eyes, like my big brother.
Mammals are worm blooded.
The big blue whale has baleen wich is his other teeth.
Funny things they said:
“My mom can play the tangerine really well.”
“My health report is on Alcohol and Neurotics.”(Narcotics)
“Since I’m half Jewish, tonight we’re going to light the harmonica.”
“Mrs. Guinn, you sound just like a cowgirl.” (And I had been trying SO hard to lose that Okie accent!)
“Mrs. Guinn, from the back, you look just like a kid, but from the front you look regular.
“Mrs. Guinn, I like you because you’re so normal.”
(Well, I’ve been called a lot of things in my life, but normal has never been one of them!)
