Ok I WAS going to bed but this is too fun of a linky party to miss. Mrs. Bainbridge over at http://bainbridgeclass.blogspot.com/2011/07/my-first-linky-party_14.html is hosting "things my teacher says" and I have to agree with Mrs. Dillard at http://seusstastic.blogspot.com/2011/07/umm-did-i-just-say-that-out-loud.html sometimes my smart mouth gets the best of me. Luckily I teach at rural school in the same community I live in, and most know me pretty well (at least I think that is a good thing :D). My favorite saying is "YOU can be the teacher on Saturday?" and "Do you look like me? Then you must not be the teacher." I used these a lot last year with a little guy who thought he was in charge ALL the time. Another one I've been quoted for saying (by the kids) is when a child calls me "teacher" (big pet peeve) I look at them and say "Yeah kid" or "Yes student." This always cracks the other kids up, and soon they are saying "Her name is Mrs. Klinger!" When another calls me "teeeeecher." The preK teacher next door always tells the kids "somebody needs to call the WHAAAbulance" when they think they are hurt more than they are. It cracks the little ones (and big ones) up.
Fun Linky party! Thanks Mrs. Bainbridge I can hardly wait to read the clever comebacks!
