Just In Case

 
"How was school, Bob?"

"It was good... except at recess a kid named Fred called me a sucker."

"Really?'

"Yeah. I don't know what that word means but I told the teacher anyway."

  3. Oh the things we teachers get told. Like the time my coworker's first grader told me one of my fourth graders had said, "The S word" and knowing what gets said at his house, I assumed he meant something else, when what was actually said was, "Shut up!"

    Happy SITS Day!

  4. Cute. In high school, they tell the teacher (me) things like that, too, only I'm not interested in the playful tattle-telling. This one sounds serious. Hope he is enjoying school aside from being called a sucker. Congrats on the feature. I just signed up for SITS, so this is my first blog visit and comment. I hope I'm doing it right! Happy Monday!

  5. Chances are that the other kid didn't know what it meant either!
    One reason I could never teach grade school is that state-of-learning where don't know the difference between when to deal with something themselves and when they actually need adult interference. By the time I get them, they usually know (thank heaven!).

  6. I'm surprised if the other kid knew what it meant either! He probably heard it on tv. Happy SITS Day!

  14. Happy SITS Day!

    We recently had a similar discussion except P. heard 'sucker' in a show and just figured out it wasn't nice via context. We then had an interesting discussion about sucker as a mean word versus suckers on tentacles.
