** In a Primary 4 class one particular wee boy kept asking to
go to the toilet regularly during lesson time.
After constant interruptions to lessons the teacher told the boy he should learn to control his bladder a little better and go to the toilet during break or lunchtime.
A few weeks later the same wee boy was very upset after a break because a fellow pupil had "kicked him on the ladder".
Suitably puzzled the boy was asked what he meant and he duly pointed to the affected area.
When asked why he called between his legs a ladder he innocently replied:
"'well you call it that, you told me I need to control my ladder"!
* Taking a writing lesson with P1 on first teaching placement, a student & his class were talking about a time when they had lost something. Had some good suggestions from the class eg teddy bear, gloves etc.
He asked the next pupil to come up to help him draw on the board and asked him what he had lost. He promptly announced "I lost my dad!"
Stuttering and desperately trying to salvage the situation, the teacher said he was sorry to hear that and asked what had happened....
"in the jungle where there had been tigers and elephants", he replied.
It turns out he had got separated from his Dad on a visit to the
zoo...and was fortunately re-united!!
* At news time a P2 boy announced: " I came downstairs for a drink of water late last night. Mum & Dad were sunbathing in front of the living room fire"
