I gave them a list of sentences and they had to decide if it was a fact or an opinion and explain why.
Let's just say, 3rd graders are hilarious and can be fantastically blunt, creative, and honest and their answers had me, my assistant, and a specialist pushing in laughing so hard!
My teachers are really cool:
"well not all teachers are cool"
"not all of my teachers are really cool"
"some kids think teachers are lame"
"grown ups are not cool"
"they are annoying sometimes"
"cause they don't even look cool"
"i think meh..."
"they might not be married"
"because I never met a not adult teacher"
"because you have to be over 18"
"because you have to pass a college application to be a teacher"
"because you have to prove you're smart"
"kids can't teach kids"
"teachers are adults maybe not the assistants"
"because they have phones"
"because they have control over people"
"because they talk about weird stuff"
"that's just how it is"
"because that is not true"
"i've seen better quality"
