Every week I encounter anywhere between 20 and 100+ kids. They say some ridiculous things. I write them down as accurately and timely as possible, then compile the best lines into these weekly Friday Field Notes.
Enjoy. I certainly do.
It’s funny how life events are orchestrated perfectly. I only worked two days this week. Normally the kids I see are nutty and I have lots of strange things to report. This week, every child I encountered was an absolute sweetheart. I had no issues in any of the classes I was in. I didn’t bust out my frowny face at all. Today was a “walk into a room and get attacked with hugs” kind of day. Which was precisely the kind of day I needed. Thankful for those little sweeties.
But they were still pretty funny.
Me: I don’t know your names, so will you help me learn them?
K: Well, you could review our name tags. (Pretty sure this kid is a robot….)
Me: Tell me your name and something awesome about yourself.
K: I want it to be Christmas so I can look through a telescope. To see Santa. But I don’t have one. That’s the ploblem. BUT! I wiiiiiill get one!
E: It’s the twenty oneth!
K: I write the words first ’cause I don’t forget the words!
R: Do you know the show the Young and the Restless?
T: That sounds bad.
T: THE WRESTLER?!
R: It used to be bad but now it’s getting good again.
T: It’s about wrestlers?!
Read this in a grade 2 story:
“SUDDENLY! the prince fell off the boat and almost drowned! Ariel pulled him onto the sand. She held him in the sand and gave him CP-A. And she saved him.”
Grade two can’t find a mitten. I found it hiding on a shelf behind a shoe.
R: I’m pretty sure all teachers are MAGIC!
Have a good weekend, Internets. I hope it’s relatively ploblem free.
