I’m forgetting a lot of great ones, but here are a couple samples of conversations I or other teachers in my school have had with students so far this year.
(Int. Cafeteria Day) Kindergarten
Little Mulder: Where did Ms. Krabapple go? (the teacher had left the class with the aid to go and eat lunch herself)
Aid: "She had to go take care of some things."
Little Mulder: "That’s too bad. We had some good times."
(Int. Computer Lab Day) 7th grade
In a discussion at the end of class about seafood that was started because that’s what I had for dinner last night)
All of the students were mentioning seafood they like or don’t like.
7th Grade Mulder: "I like Oysters. Cause they’re sexy."
Me: "They’re what?"
7M: "They’re sexy"
