The end is near! - Susan Jones Teaching

The end is near!

Tomorrow marks the TEN day countdown...

TEN more days...

I can't quite believe it!

My kids are going wild, I am still finishing testing, and tomorrow is our Art & Academic Night (lots of pictures to come)!

Sometimes the only way to make it through is to laugh, so here are just a few funny things that have happened recently:

A couple ridiculous shirts:

If only you knew these students..... it makes it that much funnier!

And a few funny quotes:

When working in a small group...
Female student A: "Hey Ms. Moran, you kinda have a little mustache."
Female student B: "Oh no, that's fine, my mom says that its okay for girls to have a few whiskers!"
{Ms. Moran is now embarrassed... for the first time ever in front of 6 year olds... and bought a cream bleach immediately after school... no more whiskers :) }

During a read-aloud about sea turtles laying eggs...
Female student C:  After being called upon, student C stands up in front of the class and proceeds to tell me, "Ms. Moran, now that you are engaged you are going to have your own babies - just like the turtle! Except that they will come out of... ya know.... there...[student is point at my lady parts in large circular motions]"
{Ms. Moran is now embarrassed... for the SECOND time in front of 6 year olds and awkwardly tries to change the subject back to turtles.}

and as of today during our school-wide volunteer reception...
After our principal graciously thanks our president of the parent committee...
Male student D: clearly confused, yells out,"Wait what?!? That's not our president... our president is some black dude!"
{Ms. Moran closes eyes, shakes head, and tries to remember that there are only 10 more days.}

Welp, the things kids will say!
Have a great night :)
