They are so funny. I work with 2 year olds and we laugh all day at the things they come up with. A sense of humor is a requirement if you work with young people.

These are always so entertaining! Plankton is one of my favorites (and his computer wife Karen!).

Very cute. Just wait until you have been teaching for two decades like me. Those comments are what keeps me going every year.

These kids say the "darndest things". I recall liking these posts about your students and what they have to say. I liked the age one on that you were "ancient". hahahaha

Kids are the best. I love how they have no concept of age. One of my teacher friends told her class she is 104 and they believed her!
