I was driving Caroline to school the other day when she said, “Faith and Ava were touching my nap mat during quiet time.”
I said, “What did you do about that?”
Caroline said, “I told the teacher.”
“And what did the teacher say about that?”
“She said, Stop touching that nap mat you fools!”
I sat there for a moment driving.
“Caroline, I don’t think your teacher said that.”
I’ve never heard anyone at our house say those words so I’m guessing she picked them up during a Scooby Doo episode.
Once we got to school I told the teacher what Caroline had said. I told her I knew she hadn’t said it, I just thought it was funny.
The teacher laughed along with some of the other parents standing there.
As I walked away I started to smile and chuckle and the thought of a teacher saying, “Stop touching that nap mat you fools!”
Maybe this is a new education movement I’m unaware of.
“The answer is 8 you fools!”
“We never use pen during math you fools!”
“You always turn in your homework on Friday fools!”
I’m thinking of getting Caroline’s teacher some gold medallions to help bring her to the forefront of this movement.
