Oh Fudge!

Awhile back I put up a post called ** This Keeps Me Going** check it out if you haven't already read it!
Most of you know by now that I am a kindergarten teacher! And we all know kids say the darndest things, right?
The other day in school I was giving my students there 1st math test. Sounds simple right? Since this was the 1st test I had given them and probably the 1st test for most of them ever I went over proper test taking rules!! Ya know, like no talking during the test - no trying to look at your friends paper(eventhough I split them up), raise your hand if you have a question, etc.... Just went over the basics!
So I start reading the questions and after I read the 1st question on of my kids starts quitely singing something about being "sexy." I brushed it off and told him to be quite... A few seconds later again and now louder he said something about someone being "sexy." So I stopped the test and told him that "sexy" was an inappropriate word for him to be using and to stop! Now all of the kids start in saying that "sexy" is a bad word, and that their moms say "sexy" is soooo bad, etc.... As I am quiting down my class I noticed that the child was getting a little upset and angry that the other kids kept telling him "sexy" was a bad word. As he proceeds to tell them that "sexy" isn't a bad word, but that "fu*k" is a bad word!! I almost died - it was sooooo funny!! I slapped my hands over my mouth as another child looked at me and said, "he's in trouble now!"
I had to do pull him out of class and talk to him about never, ever saying that word! He cried and begged me not to tell his mother! LOL.. I sent him to get a drink of water to calm down... He came back into the classroom and we proceeded to finish the test! Afterwards, he said to me, "you want to hear a funny word?" I said no and that I thought he said enough for the day!!!
This reminded me of the movie The Christmas Story! I loved that movie!!
Remember when Ralphie said: ffffffffudge when his Dad was changing the tire... Now you know the kid in my class felt like Ralphie for the rest of the day...Just waiting for me to tell his mother!! It was too funny...

wow... ok wow! I'm glad I never had that happen to me. I would have not known how to react to that word popping up in kindergarten. I hope the other kids don't go home and ask their parents what that word means.

And can I just say... A test?? Wow I thought I taught boot-camp for first grade. I did all my assessments one-on-one I never gave a whole class test.

Kids are so awesome. They say the funniest things without meaning to. And I remember as a kid lots of people laughing when I would speak. I hope it was because it was cute funny. ;)
