From their lips to my ear -
Grande one - "I can't do all that work, I'm only made of toothpaste you know."
Grade six - "If I had a million dollars and a pickup truck would you marry me?"
Grade two- "Here's my lunch money!"
"Why is it all in change?"
"I stole it from my mom so we could hang out over lunch!"
Grade one - "I have 5$ if I give it to you would you hang out with me?"
"I will just do that for free."
"Great because I really wanted to buy a car."
Grade one: I walked into a special setting classroom to pick up a student who was in the process of being removed for violence - when I entered everyone stopped and looked at me including the child whose mouth was still in mid bite of a worker - he said - "Hi Kerry, I will be right with you." I was thinking probably not but it was positive attitude.
Grade two: "It's new years soon and we have to work on our resolutions. What would you like to change for the new year?"
"I can't think of a thing. I mean I'm pretty perfect right now what would I need to change?"
"Well we could work on your habit of punching people when they don't do what you want."
"Oh, I guess there's that."
Grade two special setting: "So, how does a guy get out of this place?
"Damn, that's gonna be hard."
A classroom with a sub and student hurling objects at her- when I arrived he was just removing a shoe to pitch, unfortunately it hit me in the face - he said, "Wow, I am so sorry I was not aiming for you!"
Calming room with a grade one student who was raging - "Let me out or I'm going to get naked."
"Well ok but I think you will be cold."
Clothes began to pile up under the door when I heard, " Could you just pass back that sweater and maybe the pants."
