MR. BOWERS: First graders, why do you think we teach people to write in cursive?
DELILAH: So that adults won't have to write like kids?

Kindergarten Stray

MR. BOWERS: If you see a dog without a home, that's called a "stray dog."
ETHAN: And if you see a homeless man, that's called a "stray person!"

Speaking of Hitting

Is there a good reason to hit someone at school?

Yes, if they have an ant or mosquito on them. However, if they are on fire, you might want to push them down and tell them to roll around to put it out.

Conversation With a Mom

One of the 4th graders' mom stopped me after school. She and I have good conversation on a daily basis, so this was all a friendly conversation about her son:

A MOM: I hear my son got in trouble today in Drama today.

MR. BOWERS: Yeah, he said that you told him if someone hits you, you can hit them back--even if it's a girl. I told him that his mom doesn't want him to get bullied, that she wants him to fight back...not this little play slapping with a girl...and that he shouldn't be hitting girls in the first place.

A MOM: Yeah, I told him that...a girl that age shouldn't be hitting a boy and I told him that if someone initiates contact, he should hit them back.

MR. BOWERS: Well, maybe you could tell him that if he wants to hit someone, to invite them home so you can watch!
