Kids say the darndest things

At my new school, I am a kindergarten teacher in the morning, and a reading intervention teacher in the afternoon. During my reading lessons, I use Post-it Correction tape to cover up the kids writing mistakes. Instead of calling it "Post-it correction tape" to the kids, I call it boo-boo tape, because it covers their writing "boo-boos". I have been meeting with these students for about 4 weeks now, and a student just asked me why I keep calling the tape booby tape. Ha, for 4 weeks he has assumed I have been saying booby tape multiple times throughout our lesson!

Yesterday we got a new student, and I did some testing with her to determine what she knew. After about an hour of testing, we took a break and walked around the school. During this time she just looked up and me and said, "You know what Mrs. Cates, you sure do sound like a cowgirl!". HA! I guess we don't talk like everyone else here :)
