There used to be a show called ‘Kids Say the Darnedest Things.’ It was funny to see what the kids would come up with when asked different questions.
I honestly love my job! Most days anyway. I love that I have all the students for a little while and not just one class all day long. You never know what they are going to say!
Yesterday, we were doing a Digital Citizenship lesson on balancing time online and offline. One of the questions I asked was why do we need to make sure we don’t spend too much time online? There were many answers, but one of my students raised his hand and said, “Because if you do, it rots your brain and then your brain falls out of your nose!”
Now, there are moments as a parent and teacher that you really want to bust out laughing but cannot! This student was dead serious! I am sure his parents have told him this and good for them! Sometimes whatever it takes to makes sense to the kids, right? Inside I was laughing, but on the outside…
I just smiled and moved on!
