I have 5-6 students do self-introductions at the beginning of every class. 

My student: "I'm really good at smiling. I'm really bad at mind control."

Student (screaming with his head out the classroom window): I AM NATURAL HUMAN
Me: What does that mean?
Student: I.... am... natural... human.

Me: So there are no girl's sports teams at this school? What if a girl wants to play sports?
Female student: Teacher, girls don't like sports. Girls like reading and drawing.

Student (in the middle of class pulls out a long lacy ribbon and starts to wrap it around his neighbor's head)
Me: What are you doing?
Student: .... Theresa
Me: Mother Theresa?
Student: Yes teacher.

I was teaching grade 5 yesterday, and one of the character's name's in the book is betty. The student kept calling her panty. He knows what it means ( I have no idea how), and he kept ''panty for the next 5 minutes. I acted harsh with him and he stopped, but I think he saw me cracking up at him.

What is up w panty?

My students at both schools love saying that word. Must be a part of child pop culture bc of some commercial or something.

Panty is the word Koreans use for both men's and women's underwear. It's a loan word from English.

We were on the 'Would you like to come?' lesson.  I had some students write their answers on the board.

The correct answer was, "I'm having a snack party."

The student misspelled 'snack' as 'snake' and wrote the 'r' as an 'n.'

So, he wrote, "I'm having a snake panty."

The whole class was rolling when they figured out what he wrote.
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.

I was teaching some very young kids the word "idea". One little boy mimed taking a huge bite of food and yelled out, "MY IDEA IS CHICKEN!"

They're always hungry when I get them!

Student walks in with an ace bandage tied around his waist, sash-style.
Me: What happened?
He laughs, so I ask while miming: Were you shot?
Student: No, I am having baby.
Me: When are you due?
Student (looks at his watch): October.

One boy in my after school class, in third grade, constantly sings something along these  lines over and over again. "Have a nice day, have a nice body, have a nice life...."

In my third grade class we were playing a PP game where a picture of a famous person came up and the students had to say, "Hello, my name is...." A picture of Obama comes up and one the boys jumps up and shouts, "Hello! My name is Michael Jackson!" The class starts screaming at him, I just stand there laughing.

One day I came to school and a group of my 5th grade girls told me that I didn't look good today. I didn't match apparently... I walked into their classroom, these same girls came up to my co-teacher and explained it all to her to make sure she new I didn't look good. While this was going on, one of the boys came to me and told me that I looked like a grandma...
After lunch, no change in outfit or anything, I walked into a different fifth grade class and the class starts making all kinds of noise. They said, "Teacher! You look like a movie star!" "Teacher, you look like a picture!"
Lesson: Before lunch, I'm a grandma. After lunch, actress...

The other day, when I was at my computer reading this very thread, in a totally silent and nearly-empty classroom, one student who had been studying quietly asked me out of nowhere:
"Is Jesus your king?"

We were playing the Hot Seat game (I found it somewhere on waygook, actually) where a student sits facing away from the tv and the rest of the students try to make them guess what's behind them. The picture of Barack Obama came up and all the students stared at it for a while. Finally, one of them shouted "AMERICA KING!"

One of my students ran up to me yesterday in the hallway as I was leaving school and said "Teacher, I have a secret!" Then he leaned in and whispered in my ear, "I AM OPTIMUS PRIME." And then said "Don't tell anyone!" and sprinted away down the hallway again.

I was reviewing prepositions today and this one group was struggling.  Basically they had to answer 'Where is Teacher?' with a specific preposition or prepositional phrase.  They had 'in front of' and apparently couldn't come up with board (the white board was about a foot behind where I was standing).  Suddenly one of the kids jumps up and looks excited.

"Teacher! You are in front of AIR!"

Which is technically true...there would definately be air behind me. 

I shook the child's hand.
