I'll assume you're familiar with the character "Dash" from the Incredibles (I's been awhile) for this story.

One of my kids today was supercharged--talked non-stop, hyper, etc. They were all working at their seats, talking amongst themselves, when I said, "Please find the word dash and glue it in the right place."

All of the sudden, Hyperkid yelled, "HEY! I'm wearing Dash underwear!"



The entire class (seriously, even my kids with ADHD) turned around to look at Hyperkid. No one knew what to say, but finally one managed to say,

"B, you really shouldn't say that to girls. Or your teacher."

Valentine's Day

One of the other teachers told me that she sent her list of students' names for Valentine's Day home as a letter that ended with "Sincerely, Mrs. M." The day of the Valentine's party one of her boys (who, BTW, addressed his own cards) handed her a card because he couldn't figure out who it belonged to. It was addressed as follows:

To: Sincerely

From: Eric

Apparently Little J said a really bad word on the playground yesterday over and over and over again like he does with everything. This of course got him a swift ticket to the office. The recess teacher told me it went like this:

Teacher: Little J, you're going to the office for saying that.

J: No! Please don't send me there. Please! I'll do anything! What if I give you money?

Seriously? Does that work at home?
