  1. I quacked up coming to work today and hearing on the radio about herbal pills in China made from fingernail clippings. Or maybe I was grossed out?

  2. I had to QUACK up the other day at school … as a quick reward, we swipe scented lip balms (think Chap Stick and Lipsmackers – that come in a wide variety of scents/flavors) on the backs of students hands for doing a good job …. After swiping it across the back of the student’s hand he said, “Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if you were just smearing Chap Stick on the back of our hands instead of ‘Smellies’ ?” (We call them ‘smellies’) Precious!!

  3. Today a little girl was telling a story and said “her house”. I misheard her and thought she said “whore house”. She is 8.

  4. Wearing my various shades of green for our St. Patrick’s Day storyhour at the library and a 4 year old kid said, “Wow, Mrs. Noble! You sure are the color of puke today!”

  5. My friend’s dog went under the deck & couldn’t figure out how to get back out from under it. All the poor dog had to do was turn around. ????

  6. My favorite giggle is watching Newfie video clips especially the one when the puppy is playing with a banana. Don’t all dogs love bananas?

  7. Discussion of multiple meaning words. Me, “mail and male are homophones not multiple meaning words.” Student, “No we were talking about sex, sex is a multiple meaning word.” Me, “Yeah, your’re right. Let’s go to lunch.”

  8. My seven month old granddaughter “quacked” me up today as I viewed a video of her getting super excited over the Mickey Mouse song.

  9. One thing that quacked me up today was the naughtiest little boy in my Kindergarten class came up and said, the sweetest, shyest girl in my class was “Bullying” him. Where did he get this language? He is not even a native English speaker.

  10. One of my kiddos left left for a bit to go to the dentist. Came back with a pink duck call around her neck. During recess she marched around the playground, quacking with a whole gaggle of ducklings following along behind.

  11. One of my students misread “honorable mention” as “horrible mention” in a coloring contest. Oops! But it turned into a teachable moment!

  12. I always tease that there is a bear hiding in our closet and one little boy told me that the bear is only real in my heart but it is fake in real life!

  13. One of my students noticed, after 45 minutes of being with me and the other students, that one of the other students was missing (absent)! The ironic thing is that she usually sits directly across from him! Ha!

  14. My daughter teaches kindergarten. She absolutely is a “dog mom”. In fact, I’m not so sure she doesn’t love her dog more than her husband!!! She has some pictures of her dog in her classroom. Whenever she has to get on a student, they smile and say, “Your dog is soooo cute, I want to come home with you and snuggle him.” She has admitted that she has found herself talking dog, instead of correcting the child’s behavior – quacks me up that the students have figured her out!!!

  15. Having a student visit another classroom and telling the teacher there that her class was way too loud and his teacher (me) should “teach” her how to have a quiet classroom. She’s been a teacher for over 20 years and I’m a newby!

  16. It quacked me up when a student came back from the dentist and said he had “ceilings” (sealants) put on his teeth!

  17. I teach high needs autism preschool. We got a pair of REALLY huge red sunglasses. And when I put them on my one of my students. He pulled them down his nose slowly looked at me and winked while clicking his toung. Then put them back on and walked away like it never happened.

  18. My two-year old loves reading books and whenever he tries to say the hippopotamous or babboon it always makes me laugh….he says ba-Boo and Hip-po-pot and smiles. Love him!

  19. Another teacher and I model lessons at preschools in our community. We switch weeks and both of us look quite similar, other than height and glasses. One little boy said to me, “Miss Amelie I haven’t seen you for a while.” Teasing, I said, “She’s here? I haven’t seen her for a while either!” He looked at me and said, “Well, I don’t really remember your name today.”

  20. My kindergartners were writing lists of things they love, and one little boy had “whoopee cushions” outranking his mom!

  21. I dressed up my preschoolers in green T shirts and little green hats and we had a parade through the Kindergarten hall. As we passed by a child, I heard him whisper to his friend, “well they Do look a little green today……”.

  22. My first graders holding their laughter in during our morning “self control” picture time. No laughing until I give the signal!!

  23. When my classroom of kindergarteners returned from gym on Friday to a ransacked room and their coats and backpacks flung on the school lawn. The leprechaun was so mischievous & the traps they made never caught him! One of my students said at the end of the day who has a father that is a police officer,” I’m telling my dad to arrest him!” in the most serious five year old face he could muster up. It was classic!

  24. When a Kindergarten student was showing me the toy that she got with her chicken nuggets last night.
    Me: Where did you get your chicken nuggets from?
    Student: My mom got them at “Old McDonald’s”.
    Me: (with a chuckle) Do you mean McDonald’s?
    Student: Yes, it is so complicated to say that place.

    I love Kindergarten! I hear something funny on a daily basis.
