I just thought of something funny a kid in my Language Arts class said yesterday. My teacher was laying down the law for the new nine weeks, so she was talking about how we should take our reading logs seriously. I don’t find reading to be a problem because I love it so much, but some kids can’t stand it! Right after the teacher talked about what counts as “reading”, one of the guys raised his hand and asked,
“If we’re watching a movie and turn on the subtitles and read those, can we put that down on our reading logs?”
The whole class busted out laughing because this teacher likes to be super-serious. She hardly ever laughs during class. When he said that, her face turned as purple as an eggplant, she was so mad! That just made it even funnier.
