As my students line up the same little boy....with the ghost cat is lined up with his lunch box...and the following conversation takes place:
Student: My ghost cat is in my lunch box!
Me: Now, how can you tell it's in your lunch box?
Student hands me his lunch box and says :You feel how heavy this thing is!
(He then proceeds to hold the ghost cat and allows me to pet her/him.)
...This kid cracks me up.....
Another little boy tells me today:
"Mrs. Webb, I am a very caring person. I even gave away my baby pants so that other children who have accidents can use them."
...my response..."Wow, that is caring!"
