Gifted students are....interesting.
For your enjoyment I offer you: Tidbits from my student aide:
He was quite overjoyed when I allowed him to become my aide. His first question was, "Don't you think I should have my own key to the room?"
No. No I don't.
When he sat down to grade papers the first time, he asked, "Now, I can just grade these however I want, right?"
No. No you can't.
I like to put stickers on tests when a student gets 100%. So he asked if he could have stickers to do that too. Finally something I could say yes to. I gave him a package of happy face stickers, and he went off joyfully.
A few days later he saw me putting stars on some papers. "Stars? Why don't I have stars?"
Ummm....because you have happy faces?
I set him up with his own little table in one corner of the room where he could come in and do his work. After the first day, he asked, "Can I make a sign that says 'Student Aide's Office'?"
Sure, kid. Knock yourself out.
Aren't kids fun? I really enjoy the crazy things they say. Has a kid entertained you lately? Tell me about it in the comments.
