Mrs. Bainbridge is having a linky party for our quirky sayings (we all have them!). Read on for mine:
“She went home!”
On those extra whiney days when all the kids are whining and calling my name for every little thing, I get sick of hearing my name! when someone calls me, I am bound to yell out “She went home!”
In the beginning they are truly confused when I say this, but soon after they giggle every time I say it, and get the point that I am sick of it, and stop doing it.
“Go tell Tattles, because I don’t want to hear it!”
This one is saved for those classes that ALWAYS tattle! I have a poster I made at a work shop, and I named him Tattles the Clown. When they just need to tell someone, they grab a Tattles paper, write the complaint, and stick it in Tattle’s mailbox. At the end of the day I can check the papers and take care of any situations that need my attention. Otherwise I throw the papers out, and never have to worry about them! This saves me the time from having to hear about every little thing when I could be teaching.
