Kids Say the Darndest Things

I know it is not right for a teacher to laugh at a student.  Nonetheless, some students say things that make me laugh.  For example, today one of our vocabulary words was indefatigable, which means “tireless.”  Orville shared this pun as his sentence with context clues:

Q. If a car is indefatigable, why doesn’t it run?

A. It’s tireless.

However, sometimes students are like us parents – they say something without thinking.  I heard through the grapevine (so it must have really happened) about a student asking a not-well-thought-out question.  After studying Spain for two weeks during Spanish class, the student asked, “Do they speak Spanish in Spain?”  I hope this was just the child’s two seconds of stupidity we all have each day.  (Although, according to sources close to home, I am up to 34 minutes each day.)
