Quote of the Day

I love my little 4th graders. They say the funniest things, and I'm hoping to post often enough to share some of them with you!

Now, I know the following won't mean as much to you as it did to me simply because you do not know the personality and character of the student involved in today's quote. Regardless, you may get a hint of laughter out of today's quote. :)

The way my class works for Reading and Math (core subjects) is that the students are split into 3 groups and we rotate while having "centers." During Reading I teach grammar to one group at a time. Each group has a color. Today I asked one of the groups what color they were and they replied accurately. Then, one of my boys (lego-loving, girl-chasing, jump-up-in-his-seat-when-answering boy) calmly and simply said,

"Do you know what my favorite color is?"

Wait for it...

"Mahogany."

Simple as that. Mahogany.
