Out of the mouths of babes

Mrs. Dillard is having a linky party all about the funny things kids say. She has some REALLY funny stuff on her blog!

I am so glad she is having this party, my favorite story is about a letter I got from one of my kids and I just pulled it out of a tub when I was looking for sticker two days ago!

At the end of my second year I got engaged, it just so happened that we were working on writing letters to their new teachers, and reviewing the lessons we had on letter writing during the year. So I had a bunch of kids write me letter to tell me how happy they were for me.

This is one of the letters I got:

Dear Miss M--,
Its so great that your getting marryed. But your last name when your marryed its kind of strange. so I want to tell you something congraulations.
Your Studnet

So I asked him why my name would be strange when I get married. He told me that it was because my name would be a color (Gray), and that he didn't know anyone who had a color for a name.

I just LOVE the stories teachers have.  Kids are so pure and funny!



  1. Thanks for joining my linky party! I am a new follower. I always save their's so hard to pick & choose which ones to save! I keep mine in a binder & look at them when I am feeling frustrated with work. It just gets my mind back to the reason I teach....the kids :o)
    Peace, Mel D
    Oh the Places We’ll Go

  2. Love it. It shows how kids can be so literal.
