Funny Things Elementary Students Say

We asked elementary teachers in our Teacher Discount Club Facebook Group and other teacher groups on Facebook to share the funniest things that they've heard their students say. Their responses were hilarious, so get ready for a good laugh. Here's what they said...  

I bent down to tie a kindergarten student's shoes and one of my fourth grade student said to me " Oh Ms. G. you should not wear grandma underwear with teenager pants." I guess my underwear was showing in the back. - Charlotte S., fourth grade 

We were looking at a diagram that highlighted the kidneys. A sweet boy said "Mrs. M., this diagram is wrong, the kidneys hang outside your body further down." Another student started to correct him and I replied with "We'll cover that in our human growth and development talk, but I promise this diagram is correct." - Kelly M., fifth grade

In the middle of a lesson a student asks "Mrs. R., did you know you are white?" I jokingly say "No, you're kidding! I thought I was pink!" My student responds "Well, you are a little pink." - Donna W., kindergarten

I once had a student tell me, “My parents own a condom.” Shocked and confused I asked more questions only to find out he meant a condo! - Christine P., third grade

We were reviewing vocabulary words and I asked, "How would you describe the inside of a chocolate bunny when you bite into it and just see air and no chocolate?" One of my students said, "A huge disappointment." I was looking for the vocab word "hollow." - Catie K, fifth grade

We were working on contractions. I asked my students, “Does anyone know what this mark means? It looks like a comma, but it’s in the air and in the middle of the word.” One of my students proudly yelled, “It's a catastrophe!” I think she meant apostrophe. - Pagie P., first grade

A student once told me, "The way to get rid of chicken pox is to let a chicken fly over your head." She thought she was being helpful so I tried not to laugh. - Susan M., fourth grade

While introducing amphibians, I asked my students if anyone knew what an amphibian was. A student proudly exclaimed, "To amphibian and beyond!" - Kim L., kindergarten
