My Kids Say the Darndest Things, Pt. 2

Being a teacher means you’re constantly surrounded by kiddos—and some of them are going to make you laugh out loud. In my American Seminar class, I had an essay question as part of our Mid-Book Quest (Quiz-Test) and here’s something one of my kids wrote that made me chuckle. 


This is one of my student’s essay questions from our Mid-Book Quest (Quiz-Test) on chapters 6-12 of The Scarlet Letter. Instead of the main character, ‘Pearl,’ he wrote ‘Pear’. So of course I had to come in and draw a pear. (I thought I was hilarious…and so did he when he got his test back).

Just a little teacher humor for your Friday!
