Luke went home after school one Monday in early September and told his mother that he had had a protest in school that day. His mother asked what the protest was about. He relied, 'Spelling'. All his mother could imagine was a group of 6 year olds pounding their desks and chanting.. 'No more spelling! No more spelling!'
The children had been given their first spelling PREtest!
I was walking around the room checking my students' progress on an assignment and noticed one looking on another student's paper. I asked him, "Drew are you cheating?" He replied, "no Mrs. Smith, I'm just confirming my answers."

I entered this last night but I guess it didn't get connected.
In my first year of teaching at McCall, ID in 1961-62 while teaching my 5th grade about Westward Expansion I assigned my students to watch "Wagon Train." Little Kenny said, "You're going to have to send a signed note home to my dad because he will never believe that a teacher assigned me to watch TV."
Yes, that is the same school where later astronaut teacher, Barbara Morgan, taught. Good district where some would call it backwoods. Very scenic.

;My second year of teaching (1962-63) was at a very old school building (Kenwood) in Nampa, ID while my bride was completing her Senior year at NNC. For my class of 6th graders we were on the subject of light years so I did all of the multiplication to arrive at the number of miles in a light year which covered most of the black board. Rod responded with "Yep, you live, you die and go to Heaven or Hell, and that's it." He had been attending SS at College Church of the Nazarene from a non church family. He really loved football but I could tell by his build that he was not going to grow to be a large man so I started him punting and place kicking at recess time. Six years later I was in graduate school at the University of Idaho and noted on the sports page of the Library copy of the Nampa paper that Rod was the kicker for the Nampa HS Bulldogs and averaging around 48 yards per punt which would be a good average for a college or pro kicker. Later when I moved back to the Boise Valley I learned that Rod had gone on to be the kicker for the Boise State Broncos and did very well. He has had a career of serving as a the kicking coach at his HS.alna mater, Maybe this isn't so funny but I just thought I would submit it for interest sake.
