My Life...

During a math lesson today, all of the students are on the carpet with their slates and markers...merrily using their slates EXACTLY (because that happens all the time...not) as they should.  And I notice one of my boys is writing "potty words" on his slate....please continue reading for our conversation.

Me: "Um, excuse me sir does that say poop?"
Boy: "Yes."
Me: "Well, poop is definitely not how many tens and ones are in the number 64."
Boy: "I know, but it's funny."
Me: "Yes, it is funny, but not appropriate.  Do you know what would happen if you go to second grade and write poop on your slate?  We need to start taking our learning seriously and know that there is a time and place to be silly.  Do you understand?"
Boy: "Yes, do not write poop on your slate."
Girl From Across the Room: "Yea, aint nobody got time for that."
Me: "Thank you Sweet Georgia Brown."
