A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!.

Marsha that is hilarious. Aren't kids the BEST therapy. They always make me smile

Tell me ... is a Miss as good as a Mr. when ya Missus does fall Pregnant?

I would love to share my anecdote from when I used to teach rug ratz, but mine is a little more colorful ...

I asked my students to write a short journal entry about what they did on the weekend. With journal writing, it is more important to get the feel of the entry, rather than perfect spelling and punctuation. One sweet girl had been to the football with their father, so she wrote all about her experience at the footy. It is amazing how much young people pick up ... I couldn't pick up on what she was trying to say, even with my years of interpreting creatively phonetic spelling and jumbled meanings. Her brilliant story ended with ...


What the heck was she trying to spell?
(I told ya it was colorful)

I tried to not show how hilarious I thought it was, that she had written this in class. After all, she was only 6, too.
Soooo funny. I miss teaching .... SOME times
