Beat, Greet, or Eat It?

28 Sep


I’d love for you to fill in your own captions here, particularly for that last frame.

Sooo…is the carrot deciding to be eaten or is the rabbit now in love with it or…geesh I give up.

Times like these I’m sure educators all over the world grant high grades because they don’t want to admit they are confused.  Good thing this was just a participation assignment.

Things my students say (on love):
“Sometimes a teacher hit you and you probably think that they hate you but it is hit of love.”

(This blog does not condone abuse in any form, nor do we believe this student should encourage others to accept abuse.  This teacher addressed this situation immediately after the comment.)

If the dead can kiss their girlfriends, then maybe the living, married couples stand a chance.


I am sometimes surprised by the questions that my preschoolers ask me.

Preschooler: “Teacher, when people get married, is it okay for the boy to kiss on the mouth?”

Me: (0o0) “!!!” … “Go ask your parents…”

Phew! Dodged that one!

She Understands Me…Really.

Yesterday, in class, I asked the students to give some answers from the unit we had just completed last week:

Student:  Teacher, I’m not sure the right answer exactly.
Me:  Just do your best.
Student (in Arabic):  Wallah (By God), I didn’t study.
Other students (in Arabic):  YOU IDIOT! SHE UNDERSTANDS ARABIC!!!
Student:  Teacher, you do?
Me:  Yes, 100%
Student:  Oops… heheheh *nervous laughter* Teacher, I didn’t have time!
Me:  You had 3 days.
Student:  *BIG SMILE*
