You may or may not know that I am a teacher, and today I’m going to share some of the funny and strange things students have said to me in the past. As they say, out of the mouths of babes right? I’ll share my internal reaction to their statements.
“Miss, this song is so last year.” So last year?…what does he mean? Is it old already?
“But I don’t want to share!” Too bad kid, too bad.
“Miss, why would we export all our wood just to import furniture they make with it? Why don’t we make our own furniture?” I haven’t a clue.
“Do we have to write in sentences?” This question again? Are they trying to piss me off?
“You’re getting married? Why?” Huh? Why would he ask why?
“Why are you wearing glasses?” I guess I haven’t worn these before today….
“Your eyes are blue today.” Did I overdo the eyeshadow?
“You’re wearing four earrings!” Oh, I need to write this down in her documentation journal, this is great number representation.
“OH MY GOD MISS, YOU’RE HAIR IS RED!” Why is she so excited?
“Can I have your necklace?” God bless you, no.
“Are we doing math today?” Yes, sadly I have to teach math every day. I don’t like it any better than you do.
“Miss, why do you always use words we don’t know?” Because it amuses me.
“Didn’t we do this yesterday?” Yes, we did, but today we are building on it. Why do they interrupt with these questions?
“Your hair is so red!” Wow, seven year olds get excited over strange things.
“I need help with my gloves.” Really…why didn’t your mom send mittens?
“Is this a healthy snack?” She’s asking this again?
“My grandma listens to this music.” 90s rock? Is his grandma my age?
“I love you.” I love you too, kid.
These are just some of the funny and strange things students have said to me! I hope you found this post amusing, and enlightening. I really love my students, and this post is a bit tongue in cheek, but kids do honestly say the darnedest things—at all ages—and I have a lot of fun with my students.
