The hilarious things the children I teach have said.

Chivalry at its best

Today, a boy, all of six years of age, held a door open for me. At my school we have ‘First Class Friend’ tickets that are handed out to children who are being ‘First Class Friends’. They can be handed out to children who are being helpful, showing good manners, showing kindness, showing a positive attitude, playing fairly and a few other things. 

I wrote one for the boy who held the door open for me. While I was writing it, he said, 

“You know I didn’t do it because I like you. I did it because my Dad said you should always do that for ladies.”

At least he called me a lady… 

Oh dear

Today we were all in a bit of a silly mood. The kids were getting the giggles and we talked about crazy things that could happen. Then, one boy who is usually quite reserved and quiet, walked up to me and loudly said,

“I’ve known that two plus five equals seven since I was a kid!”

I kindly said, ‘You are a kid!’ Only to hear him say, 

“Oh dear…”

As he put his hand on his forehead. Poor little guy!
