I would laugh so hard I'd cry!

As summer winds down, (at least for us in Florida) our focus turns to everything, ‘Back to School.’
The sales are in full swing and we’re shopping!  New school clothes, monogrammed backpacks, crayons, & pencils...

(be sure to read all the way through to get the details about our Back 2 School Sale! and our Little Free Library Back 2 School Happy Hour Event)!
 
I must admit, I’m feeling a little melancholy.
I was a classroom teacher for so many years and this time of year was always one of my favorites, largely due to the fact that I’m slightly obsessed with fall & back to school means fall is near, but I digress…

Then I turn my thoughts to all of the FUN I had as a classroom teacher, and I can’t help but giggle quietly to myself.
There was never a day my students didn't have me laughing so hard I almost cried (and sometimes, I did)!  
 
Who doesn’t like a good laugh?  So in the spirit of ‘sharing is caring, ’ here you go...
I stumbled upon some great  articles of teachers divulging the most hilarious and shocking things their students have said in class!  I picked just a few of my favorites to share with you… ENJOY!
 
  • During snack time, a kindergartner asked why some raisins were yellow while others were black. I didn’t know the answer, so I asked my friend, a first-grade teacher if she knew. “Yellow raisins are made 
from green grapes, and black raisins are made from red grapes,” she 
explained.  One little boy suggested, “Maybe that’s why she teaches first grade because she’s just a little bit smarter than you.”—Erica Coles, Watertown, Tennessee
 
  • I recently asked a student where his homework was. He replied, “It’s still in my pencil.”—Larry Timmons, Surprise, Arizona
 
  • A note from a student’s mother: “Please excuse Chris from reading, because he doesn’t like it.”—Roy Hartley, Elberton, Georgia
   
  • Question: Name a famous 
explorer. Answer: Dora.—James Parks, Red Lion, Pennsylvania
  
  • During the Christmas/holiday classroom party, a boy comes up to me with a gift bag (obviously re-used) and says: “Here teacher…my mom got this present and she didn’t want it and she called everyone in our family and they didn’t want it either so she said to just bring it to school and give it to you!”
