Tuesday ten: Kid Quotes

It's true, kids say the darndest things. This year, I am teaching second grade at Downtown Academy. This is the youngest age I have taught, and they are just the cutest little bunch of kiddos. All day long they keep me laughing to myself with their little quips. I've been trying to keep a log of their quotes in my phone, but it is hard to do so in the moment! Here's a small fraction of what they've said so far:

1. Did you know collard greens comes from grass?

2. The doctor said if I broke my nose again I'd have to get a new one.

3. Me: I never played any sports. Ever.
Student, incredulously: Then why you so skinny?!

4. Your dress is soft. Is it silk?

5. [walking up the hill to the school from the lunchroom, huffing and puffing]: I'm not gon give up, cause mans don't give up!


6. All teachers got some kind of toughness in em.

7. Me: That looks ratchet!
Student: Whoa you say that too? You know what that means?
Me: Yeah.
Student, to peers: Wow, she's just like a kid still!

8. At my old school they taught me that if you drink too much water [from the water fountain] there's not gon be enough for fish bowls!

9. Student: Do you have kids?
Me: No.
Student: Why? Are you married?
Me: No.
Student: Do you have a man?
Me: No.
Student: You don't have a man?
Me: No.
Student: Oh...

10. Me: Please sit up.
Student [lying down on pillow in reading center]: But it's comfty!
