At the risk of reincarnating "Kids Say The Darndest Things," ...

... one more.

A conversation with one of my fifth graders yesterday evening:

A: "Isn't this early for you to be leaving work?"
me: "Yes.  But I'm going to the circus."
A: "To watch, or to perform?"

A Modest Proposal

One of my fourth graders wanted to create her own writing prompt for a short story.  She was too embarrassed to say it out loud, claiming it was "too girly."  I asked her to type it.  Here's what she came up with:

"I just watched tinker bell and the lost treasure with my little brother and sister and im on a website from long ago called pixie hollow and I sort of have a lot to say about tinker bell stuff."
