Well I loved this one!! Very funny Brian.
I used to collect the things my first graders said--my family was so disappointed when I moved to teaching 3rd grade.
I do remember the first week of school when a new first grader came back from lunch--they were used to half days in K and he yelled, "Just how long are you planning to keep me here anyway?"
Another one that still makes me laugh was one day with my class sitting by me on the rug and one child who seemed to always have loud flatulence issues--he suddenly made an enormous gaseous noise during story time. One of my favorite sarcastic little kids looked at him and without missing a beat said, "Thanks for sharing, Michael!" and we moved on with reading the book.
Happy Thanksgiving Brian. Your students are lucky to have a teacher with such a great sense of humor!
