This popped out of one of my 6th graders mouth this past week
In the midst of me explaining our baseline essay
"So you teach us not only how to talk and color, but now we have to write too..."
I give him a confused look and then more words come out of his mouth
"I mean I was thinking language arts...language is talking and arts is coloring...right?
Sometimes there are NO words to say when my students utter things like this
It's just better to move on
At least he gave me a good laugh for the day!!
