Get it Right

Overheard this in the cafeteria today:

3RD GRADE GIRL:  Nuh-uh, he doesn't...he don't do that!

Blend In

We were watching The Nutcracker with the 5th graders today.

FREDDIE:  I don't like this, this is dumb.
MR. BOWERS:  Freddie, aren't you going to be RICH when you grow up?
MR. BOWERS:  Well, rich people like watching Ballet, so you better start enjoying it.

Lost From Words

Today, we are doing our annual production of  YO LEONARDO, which is a musical celebrating famous artists, so I decided to wear a beret to go along with my curly mustache:

TAMIA:  Mr. Bowers!  You look like, uhh, one of those people who wear that kind of hat...and, uhh, can draw real good!
MR. BOWERS:  You mean, an ARTIST?
MR. BOWERS:  Thank you.

Xavior is a PreK'er this year and we call him Xavitor because on the first day of school, his name tag was kinda hard to read and the "I" looked like a "T", and well, we do have kids with strange names, so it just stuck.

Today, he was in computer class and I was in there helping out the copmuter teacher.  Xavitor was playing a game where his cheetah was racing other cheetahs.  He was running into the other cheetahs and making them crash into the rocks:

XAVITOR:  Yeah!  Take that, SUCKER!  Yeah SUCKER, I beat you!
MR. BOWERS:  Xavitor, why are you calling those cheetahs suckers?  You should call them Lollipops instead. 
XAVITOR:  Take that, LOLLIPOP!  Yeah, LOLLIPOP, I beat you!
