Out of the Mouths of Babes

I was assessing children on coin identification for report cards. Most assesments have to be one on one and it drags on forever. I called K up....

Me-What's this coin.


Me-What's this one?


Me-this one?


MeAnd how about this one?


Me-Yes this is torture, but we pronounce it quarter.

Later on that day, during a rainy recess time, we were watching a well known animated classic in which a fox and a dog who were once friends get into a fight. All of the children are horror struck. Some have their hands to their mouths, others have covered their eyes. Suddenly above the noise of the fighting animals H yells out 'Jeeezzus Christ!"

It's really hard to correct a child for inappropriate comments when you are laughing so hard.

Just saying....
