So after teaching elementary school kids for three weeks, you'd think I'd have some interesting snippets to share right? You'd be correct. Already have a couple memorable quotes under my belt.
I asked the students to give an example of a simple sentence.
Student: *mumbles something*
Me: What did you say? "I'm so high??" (thoroughly confused)
Student: "I like pie."
Me: Oh....good sentence.
Thankfully they did not seem to grasp the bad meaning of my blunder, so I was able to breeze past that.
The students were supposed to fill in a comparative or superlative adjective in a sentence:
George was the __________ firefighter at the station.
Student: George was the blackest firefighter at the station.
Other students: Oooh that's so rude!
Me: (acting totally calm) You mean because he was fighting fires....right?
It's been rather entertaining so far.
