That Could Hurt!!

Today while writing "long u sentences" during literacy centers J. wrote:
"I put an ice cube in my dick."

Let's hope he meant to write,
"I put an ice cube in my DRINK."

But with little J. and his previous penis issues anything could be possible huh?

Oooouch. Yeah, I'm thinking he mean "drink." I'm HOPING he mean drink...

Owen drew a picture for me the other day with a red marker because he knows red is my favorite color. He captioned it, "You lick red."

Only when it's candy.

I can think of various reasons for putting an ice cube where he said he put it, none of which would make any sense given the context of a first grade classroom. Maybe the boy has some Freudian issues. Might be worth exploring...

Owie! Did you send it home to mom? Heh heh!

Well, given some of the kids I work with, maybe he just cant spell "dink" or "penis" and went with "dick just so you could still get the general idea?

Hi! Been teaching the last 8 years or so, wanted to since I was 12, actually went to University when I was in my mid-20's, and got my degree when I was 30. I found my way here through a link on one of the blogs one of my students said I should read.

Just from what I've seen so far, I think I'm going to have to add your link to my own blog-stalking list.

Oh, I saw some graffitti in a back alley here a while ago. It said, "FcuK YOU" (case sensitive, honest). Maybe it's just me, but when I was a kid, we always did a draft of what we were going to spray-paint because it would be far too embarassing to make a mistake like that and have all your friends laugh at you.

I can't wait to find the time to stroll through some of your archives. Feel free to stop by yourself.

Or not.

Yikes!! That's a keeper!! Little initial blends review???

I had a little girl sound out the title for a story once...she wanted it to be "My Future" but instead sounded it out and wrote "My F*cker" with a backwards "C" and she didn't leave out the "U".
