Reviewing sickness and ailments with my 6th graders, they were asked to make sentences with different possible ailments.  Students said, "I have a headache" and "I have a runny nose etc."

One students raises her hand and says, "I have cancer!"   ???
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.

My 4th graders have recently taking to dropping the F-bomb a lot. Today one of the really funny and smart ones came up to me, enormous grin on his face, pointed to his classmate and said...

"Teacher!! :D He is ****** me!"

Where do you even start with that?

Fast-paced team game, for points and candy. Talking about things that are upsetting (example phrase: "I left my bag on the subway. I'm really upset.")

KID LEAPS UP TO ANSWER FIRST: "My pork cutlet ate my brother! I'm really upset!" *beat* "WAIT NO! I AM WRONG!"

Could. not. stop. laughing.

Worksheet Crossword and Questions:

Question: Do  you like the smell of garbage?
Student answer: Why I like the smell of garbage? :laugh:

Same student (The assignment was: You are at a coffee shop. Write three question you will ask a foreigner)  Her response:

Are you a spy?
You ever kill  someone?:laugh: (Actually i can't remember the exact wording.  I'm  pretty sure there were grammar errors, but I love the fact that she's being creative and thinking outside the box).

In playing a game of two truths and a lie,  one of her truths was,

"I  don't like cats because I can't see their eyes." (Maybe it was, "I don't like their eyes")

I love this kid! :)

Somewhat related to this topic, but really makes you think. Especially student number 4's answer.

Summary: Korean students talk about their opinion on having a hakwon curfew.

When walking into a second grade class: "Hello flasyb, baby!"
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

We are not "guests" in Korea. Korea didn't invite us over for Pimms in the garden. We are paid employees.

When practicing lesson 15 with 6th grade, I was asking the students to finish the sentence "It's time to..." The first answer:

"It's time to kill Bieber."  I couldn't altogether disagree  ::)

2nd to last class of the semester...I, the teacher, who keeps meticulous records of what lesson and period the students are on, was off my game one day. I came in thinking they were on 2nd period of the last lesson, but they ALL corrected me...
(4th grade, lowest level class for the most part)

Me: Good Morning. Open your books to page 132, story time 2.
SS: What? No. Teacher, page 1-3-0. Storytime 1.
Me: Really? <look of shock>
SS: Yes, teacher, we are slloooow...
Me: <dying of laughter>

I don't know where they learned that. This is a class that sometimes doesn't understand the dialogue on the CDRom, so that they came up with that was amazing and funny. Needless to say I had to combine lessons to finish, because "they are slow" haha

I prepared a simple worksheet with three blank panels for the students to draw a comic strip with some English dialog.

Student: Teachar!  How do you spell 'transgender'?
Me: Uh...
Student: You know, man changee, woman changee.
Me: (!!!) Uh, T-R-...

These are girls in my 1st grade middle school class...
