Funny things kids say

It's been a while since I've shared some of the funny things I've heard at school from the kids, so I figured since the school year is winding down, it's a great time for another doe of kid funnies!

Heard from a student as they were rushing out of the building at the end of the school day:
"I don't know what country we're in. It's either Hawaii or Thailand."
I think someone needs to pay a little closer attention in History!
(I dunno about you, but these look nothing alike...)

One of my super cute, sweet first graders was asking how old I was. I asked her how old she thought I was and she said 20 (oh, bless her...). Then the other little boy, who's also a little peach, goes "I think you're 35. My mom is 35." Then he asked how old the girl's mom was and she said, "My mom is 47"
His response: "Wow! That's a lot of inches!"

Two 3rd grade students were outside of my office at the end of the day, emptying things into
the big recycling bin. The girl is saying to the boy, "And next week, I'm not going to help you. You're going to do it. All by yourself."

It kind of trails off and I can't hear what she's saying, and then I hear her say,
"And on Monday, what will your desk be like?"
Boy: "Clean"
Girl: "And on Tuesday, what will your desk be like?"
Boy: "Clean."
Girl: "And on Wednesday, what will your desk be like?"
Boy: "Clean"
And so on...
Girl: "And on Friday, will your desk be heinous, or will it be clean?"
Boy, smirking: "Clean?"
And yes, a 3rd grader used the word 'heinous'...and used it correctly!

Just a few snap shots into the funny things I come across and hear on a regular basis. One of the many perks about working with the kiddos!


  1. I'm just so loving that she used the word heinous. Such a good word. Love, love, love it!

  2. Hahaha! Kids are hilarious.

  3. So funny! I teach special education and I'm always hearing little gems... The other day I commented on how tall one of my fifth graders was getting and he replies, "Oh thanks, it's puberty." And then just walks away! Hahaha oh goodness I couldn't stop laughing!

  4. Ohh that is so funny! Kids are like free entertainment some times! :)

  5. lol...they sure say some funny things!
