My teacher always says....

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.

  2. Thanks for joining my linky party! I sometimes tell my kids I'm not there either... gets pretty funny looks the first time, but then they figure out that I just need a second!
