Dead Presidents

, , , , | Learning | February 10, 2019

(When I am teaching fourth grade, my students do a project where they make little cutouts of various US presidents. The next day, one of my students comes to me in tears, saying that on the bus home, an older kid grabbed her president and tore it up. I confront the kid the next day.)

Me: “Did you tear up my student’s president?”

Kid: “No! Someone else did!”

Me: “She says it was you.”

Kid: “No! All I did was tear off the head and legs!”

(I gave the girl the sample president as a replacement. Poor kid traded James Madison for Jimmy Carter.)
