I thought I'd share some of the things that I heard from my students this week.
student: Mrs. Crawford I really got my homework done, I just left it at home. Can I get another copy in case I lost it?
me: Did you forget or did you lose it?
My favorite for the week:
Student: I couldn't do my book report because my dog "pooped" on it.
me: I would like for you to bring in the book in a ziploc bag so that I know that really happend.
student: okay, but it had diahhera all over it!
me: okay, I'll let you borrow another book to finish up, but I want you to bring me the book tomorrow.
(He brought the book the next day. It really was "pooped" on).
Public education is a hoot!
