Ms. Toll's Tales

What happens when I document my students:

Ms. Toll: Ethan, what does "N" say
Ethan: "ding-dong"

Ms. Toll: Does anyone know who Barack Obama is?
Ammeriah: He's that guy from Oklahoma.

Robert to his aunt pointing at me as he walks by: "That's my Ms. Toll"

Amena to a student who is apparently eating glue: Don't put glue in your mouth, you will die.

Dale: When I grow up I'm going to be a jet pilot in the Navy! And a carpet seller (nodding matter-of-factly)!

Nora: Ms. Toll, I almost pee'd my pants!

Ms. Toll pointing to a picture of a semi-truck (mind you it's just a semi-truck against a white background): What is this?
Two students in unison: Traffic
---Ah, you've been on I-40?

Elijah: I can't go to college, it's too big, and far.
Ms. Toll: But you can go wherever you like, you can go to a college that is near Disneyland!
Elijah: (Turns to Antonio) "Oh, I like Disneyland"

While "Under The Sea" is playing during the root beer float party:
Dale: This is the crab! He has a good voice, I like it! It makes for good music.

 Aren't they cute?


  1. Ohmygosh, I love this post! I teach 3 1/2 - 5 year olds and they're so much fun! They say the silliest (and most wise) things ever. So glad I found your blog :)
