Kids Say

A conversation during math class

Whole class learning, the students on the carpet, me on a chair.

Me: Raise your hand if you can describe this word for me….hexagon

Girl raises her hand and I call on her: Miss E, I like your nails! They are sooo pretty and they look bumpy…and they look….they look like sweaters on your nails!

Me: Thank you! They are supposed to be sweaters on my nails. But can you tell me what a hexagon is?

Girl: But why is there no jewel on that one.

Me: because I didn’t follow the instructions and it fell off

Boy: YOU MEAN YOU DID IT YOURSELF?!

Me: Yes! of course!

Boy: You didn’t go to a store?!

Me: No

The whole class: WWWWWOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW

Me: guys stop distracting me! What’s a hexagon?!
