My second graders were working on cutting out a shape man so they could practice positioning the human body for a cut paper collage. I was walking around… singing a song… no, not really, but I was walking around, helping the students and eavesdropping on their conversations, which is always a great idea…
Male Student: “Girls have babies.”Female Student 1: “But they get special medicine.”Male Student: “They still suffer.”Female Student 2: “Some of them suffer.”
And later, at a different table…
Male Student: “Mine doesn’t even look like a hip. It looks like a nip.”Female Student: “What’s a nip?”Male Student: “I don’t know, but I’m calling it a nip.”

As a former art teacher, I love this!
I love the funny things kids say. I still have a box full of the funny things my kids said when they were little. I used to scribble them on napkins and whatever was handy, hence the box. I'm now collecting my grandkids funny things
OMG – the things they say – I love it, I always like listening to kids conversations!
One of the best things is listening to kids talk to each other while they work. I have heard the best stuff.
