Telling Sharing ...it should be a part of everyone's day. (Keeping a straight face is an art...)

Today during telling sharing Gretchen couldn't wait for her turn.  Even though we go around the circle, she held her hand up the entire time until it was her turn.  (An eternity, according to her.)

"Yes, I DO have telling sharing today!  Whew!  My brother is getting his TONTHILS out today.   They are VERY thwollen, and so is his you-you na."

"What?" I asked.

"You know, his YOU-YOU NA!"  She said loudly, pointing in her mouth.

"Ah, yes.  The old you-you na.  Sometimes people call it a uvula, but I think I like your version much better.  Thank you, Gretchen.  Next?"

(Your assignment?  Use the word You-you na in a sentence FOUR times this weekend.  I dare ya.)

How on earth DO you keep a straight face? Or correctly interpret what the students really mean? Keep the stories coming - you can't make this stuff up!
And PS glad your class enjoyed the books!

A you-you na - you say? No way, could I keep a straight face when dealing with that kind of sharing going on!

Have a great weekend!

You! You! Nah. I give up!

Personally I like the word verification. It's like a word game and they say that we children of the 50's should be stretching our brains.

I also check every day and love to see a new post! Funny aside, I shared your post to the teacher on the first day with my daughter. (she is a Sr in high school and doing a very cool Teacher's Academy program here in SE "Oregon") A couple days later she asked the name of the blog I found it on so she could share it and I had to chuckle and tell her VodkaMom!

I want to punch you in your YOU YOU NA when you post stories like this, because you make me miss my job!!

Don't worry, I remind myself of all the crappy parts of my job, and that I'm SO much happier not being there.

But still....I miss the babies, and moments like this.

So, thank you for sharing!!!

I heart you so hard.

A lot of iOS users would like to use Chrome, or Dolphin, or another rival web browser on our iPads and iPhones - but while that option is available, you can't make anything other than Safari the default browser, so Mail links, Twitter links and so on will always default back to Safari when you tap them.
