Third graders are sooooo funny. I taught 11th graders for 31 years. They said some pretty funny things too, especially at the end of the school year. I wish I had written some of the funny things down!

Those are a riot! I taught a multitude of grades from toddlerhood right up to 4th grade and there is nothing quite like working with kids. They can try your patience but they are great comic relief.

Thank you so much for the laughs this morning! I needed that! I'm going to send your link to my friends.

3rd and 4th graders are my favorite age, open but smart and funny, willing to say just about anything without censoring it. Sincere.

You have such smart and delightful students, Tamar! I'm sure they make you smile!

Some of these should be put in a book. What a great project to raise money for an outing.
I have to mention the Little Orphan Ms. Benjamin and I have an Aunt Ruth as beyond hilarious. That crack about I'm not trying to help the situation is so my nephew, Andy.
