HATE is a strong word... but i'm going to use it anyway!

So for all of you who used to have your parents always say "hate is a strong word", well I used and am using it now! I HATE spiders! A couple of nights ago I woke up at 4:30am to use the restroom (who does that?!?) anywho, I debated turning on the light b/c I knew I would only be a sec. when I finally decided to turn it on, only to see a ugly spider crawling down the wall. I HATE killing spiders, but can't sleep knowing that thing is running around. Growing up my mom just took a tissue and squished it; Jordan on the other hand kills it with a shoe and then picks it up. Well, I went for that approach. I attempted tonz of times, chickened out, and then tried again. Finally got the courage and got it. I felt so proud of myself! I got my tissue, went to grab it and as I did it jumped down and crawled off into the darkness. I screamed (of course) and Jordan came running in. So yes, mission not accomplished and well... spider nightmares all night long b/c that spider is crawling around somewhere. So yes, I HATE SPIDERS!!

Random 1st grade quotes from my class:
Me: "What do you put in an envelope?
Student: "Tithing!"

Student: "I'm allergic to smelling sanitizer"

Student: They had to make 4 pictures of what they like/ love right in the middle it said "Jesus"

Students: My name consists of "Mrs. Ellingson, Mrs. Allison, Mrs. Ellison, teacher, hey you!"


  1. Oh yay! I was so happy to see a post by you! I miss seeing you! So are you teaching in a first grade for your cohort? That was what i did for my first cohort. My favorite quote was: The teacher was handing out graham crackers and frosting for a lesson on mixing colors and a boy (named Victor) said: "This is the best day of my life!" hahah, so sweet, those little kids! :)

  2. I love this. i need to start writing my students funny things down. They are the best aren't they?
