The theme for this blog post: Boobs!
Last week, I spent a lot of time at my desk giving individual reading assessments to students, while the rest of the class was busy working on… let’s just go with “they were working”.
While testing I overheard bits and pieces of conversations including this one:
Boy Student: “You need to sit down and get your bosom out of my face.”
Girl Student: “My bosom isn’t in your face.”
Boy Student: “Just turn around, quit talking, and take your bosom with you.”
Girl Student: “I’m just saying, my bosom are not in your face.”
Boy Student: “Yes they are.”
Girl Student: “What are you talking about? Your bosom is your butt. I don’t have a bosom.”
Boy Student: (Yells loudly) “Your bosom is your BOOBS!!! … and I’m pretty sure you also have a butt.”
Another gem I overheard this week:
Boy Student: “Ouch! That one hurt.”
Girl Student: “Oh, don’t be such a baby.”
Boy Student: “I’m not being a baby. You like grabbed the whole muscle. You were only supposed to twist the nipple.”
While reading aloud to the class, I approached a girl was not as sneaky as she thought. She had pulled her ear bud cords up through her shirt, and covered her ears with her hair, but her iPod volume was so high, I could hear her music blaring all the way across the room.
Without her noticing, I made my way over to her and gave her cord a tug. She looked up and that’s when I got… well…
Student: “Oh sorry Miss Lewis. I’ll put them away.”
Me: “Speaking of putting things away… I don’ t mean to be rude, but I’m not sure where I should be looking right now. You need to pull your tank top up. You’re boobs are jumping out at me.”
Student: “Aww come on Miss Lewis.”
Me: “I’m serious. Cover yourself up… and I’m really concerned. Why do you have smiley faces drawn on them?”
Student: “Miss Lewis! Dont’ look at me like I’m gross. Kody drew them on there.”
Me: “Oh my gosh! Just put your boobs away. I’m going to go stand over there.”
