The other day I asked some primarys to say their name and their favorite thing to do in the winter. A few kids said snow forts, one said snow angels, two said drink hot chocolate but my favorite of all was when a little boy said : "my favorite wintah activity is scoobeedooing!"

My favorite teaching moment this year happened when i was passing out math worksheets to a grade 5 class.
Grade 5 student: "Math! i'm allergic to math!"
Me:" if you were allergic to math you would have a doctor's note to get out of it."
- several minutes pass -
Students: " um, here, i have this for you"
- Student passes me note -
Note: "charles is allergic to math. Signed- the doctor"
Me: " How funny charles, I've never heard of any doctor names "the doctor".
- Charles takes back the note and returns seconds later. The note is now signed "Dr. Einstein"
Me: " Your doctor is doctor Einstein?"
Another kid in the class pipes up: "Dr. Einstein? uh yeah, he's my doctor too!"
Me: "Charles, do your math"
I thought that was the end of it but later when i went to my desk I saw another note.
Note: " Charles is allergic to french as well"
