(you know, firewood...)
"And also, this is my 'bionicule' and it spits fire, and also, I lost a piece, and also it can make earthquakes, and also..." (not sure how to spell that)
"I am already a good reader and I am insulted that you want me to read in reading centers."
Teacher: "You need to write about what you just did in r.a.d. KIDS." (literally 20 minutes ago)
Student: "My brain can't think back that far."
Student: "That kid over there hit me!"
Teacher: "Okay, thank you for telling me, are you okay?"
Student: "Oh I'm tough, I just wanted to tell you."
"Maybe someone didn't turn in their homework because they are afraid to tell you they lost it."
And my very favorite so far...
Teacher: "Why shouldn't we tell strangers that our parents aren't home?"
Student: "Because then they will KILL our parents!"
I am loving (student) teaching!!! :)
