These are some comments my fourth grade students made this week:
Me: "Most of the candidates have already started
running for President of the United States."
Thomas: "How fast do they have to run?"
(Some faster than others.)
Me: (during a life science class studying flower parts)
"What is a gymnosperm?"
Alex: "Isn't that a boy's body part?"
(Fill in your own cute remark here.)
Me: "Why do you think Little Willy
didn't tell everyone that Stone Fox
hit him in the face? (Pause)
Samantha: "My mother and I went to visit a
friend who lives in Rio Rancho, and she
doesn't have a kitchen. She told her husband
to build the house without a kitchen because
she didn't ever want to cook again, and so he
built the house without a kitchen."
Me: "Huh? What?"
