Sometimes I think I'm the one that needs the ESL class.


Mrs. Smythe, I found somesing on da floor. I sink it’s a raisin!”


“Throw it away, Sasha.”


“Wait, it's NOT a raisin.  It’s a cockaroach!.”


“Throw it away, please Sasha.”


“It’s ok.  It was NOT a cockaroach.  It was a Taco Bell.”





I remember when I used to talk to fifth graders about Stonewall Jackson, Fort Sumter, The Revolutionary War, plate tectonics, prepositions, adjectives, onomatopoeia, similies, metaphors and fractions.  







Today, I spent ten minutes trying to determine exactly what Sasha had found on the carpet.    







 I did not succeed.

this is me...everyday. Especially when the kids relate a lesson to something that happened to Ironman, or the Transformers or Power Rangers and everyone in the room has an aha moment. And I wonder, why am I here?

What Brian said made me gag a little... but I have a feeling it is 100% true. Blech!

I would say good luck on your search for what it was... but I'm hoping it just ended up in the trash where it belonged... yes, there IS a reason I teach 3rd grade and NOT kindergarten! :)

Perhaps Taco Bell is the family code at her house for Cockroach ?

Oh those days of similar conversations as Mom, not Teacher! I relate now as a grandmother,daily inspired by my visit here.

Sounds like it was way past the "3 second" rule anyway.
