Kid Quotes

Kids really do say the funniest things, don't they?  Every now and then one of my students says something that just makes me laugh.  Sometimes I post these things to my Facebook page.  I decided to start a new feature here on the blog and share some of the funny things I hear in my speech room!

The other day I was finishing up a speech session with two boys working on articulation/phonology.  We had just finished using Phonological Processes by the Virtual Speech Center (check back next week for a review!).  One of the boys noticed a stylus in my iPad case.

Boy #1:  Mrs. Manchester, why does your iPad have a pencil?

Me:  So I can draw pictures if I want.

Boy #1:  You can draw PICTURES on an iPad?!?!

Me:  Yeah, do you want to try?

Now I pull up Hello Crayons and draw a few purple squiggles.  I hand the stylus to the boy and get this:


Boy #1 (as he's drawing):  This one is me (on the right)....And here's you Mrs. Manchester (in the middle)...and now Boy #2 (on the left).  This is you with all your curly hair!

Me:  Boy #2 do you want to try?

Boy #2:  Yes.

Here's his drawing:


Boy #1:  What is it? Is it me?  

Boy #2:  No.

Boy #1:  Is it Mrs. Manchester?

Boy #2:  No.

Boy #1:  Is it (proceeds to name several kids in their class)?

Boy #2:  No.

Me:  Is it a person?

Boy #2:  Nope.

Boy #1:  Then what is it?

Boy #2:  Well, it's magic and it's secret and I just can't tell you!  
(Code:  I have no idea, I was just scribbling!)

Hee hee!  What's the best "explanation" of a drawing you've gotten in your speech room?

  2. Haha, hearing funny things that kids says is my favorite part of working with kids! One time, when I was about 6 months pregnant, one of my Kindergarteners asked me if I had eaten my baby. I said no, and he asked how it got in my tummy. What are you supposed to say to that?! So funny!

    1. Ha ha! I got the same sort of response from a kindergartener when I was pregnant! The teacher asked if I knew if it was a boy or girl. A little boy was standing next to her so she said "Mrs. Manchester has a baby in her belly." He looked at me totally horrified and said "You ATE your BABY?!?!?!" lol!
