Chalk It Up To Inexperience

| Learning | April 22, 2014

(I am a teacher, and am a few minutes late to class. I am walking in.)

Students: “Morning, [My Name].”

(They are clearly eating something. Upon closer inspection I realize that they all have a piece of white chalk in their hands and are busy munching on them.)

Me: *very shocked* “WHAT do you think you’re doing?! Are you seriously eating CHALK?!”

(They continue eating, but one of them pipes up.)

Student: “It’s okay. The box says ‘toxic free’.”

(I had a VERY hard time convincing them they shouldn’t eat the chalk.)
