Now Everyone Wants to Pee

We have new restrooms out here in the trailer park section of our school. The 4th graders in the main building don't get to come out here much to use them, so now when they come to my class they all want to go:

ASHLEY: May I go to the restroom?
MR. BOWERS: You don't really need to go, you just want to see the new restroom!
ASHLEY: They say it looks like heaven in there!
MR. BOWERS: Yeah, but it smells like the other place.

Are Ya Sure?

Jaden in Kinder said, "My momma gots a baby and it's gonna come out in two years."

A Pre-K kid today said, "My headache hurts."

New Kinder Joke from Akhil: Why did the cow jump over the moon?...Because the farmer had cold hands.

Today, as I was calling roll one of the 2nd graders wanted to share how his mom and dad fight all the time and yell at each other. This led to about 10 other kids wanting to share. Each one had some tale of how their parents fight and even hit each other. The last one even shared that his big sister said that she wanted to kill their dad because he puts bruises on thier mom's arms. By the end, I was crying and it was a real bonding moment for the class because they all had so many problems. I teach DRAMA!

QUINLAN: Because that's how Ninja'a walk.

Screaming at Wasps

We have many wasps buzzing around our campus this time of year, and the kids always scream when they see them nearby. I try my best to keep the kids quiet.

Don't scream when you see a wasp, if the wasp sees your mouth wide open he might think that it is a great place to build a nest!
