Overheard in a Fifth Grade Classroom

After struggling for more than five minutes to work a decimal multiplication problem the student was told he could quit working on it and go back to his seat: "That would have been helpful to know a few minutes ago."

Seeing email on a student's worst list, the teacher asked about it: "It takes so long to get a response back."

After being chastised for forgetting to put his name on a paper and having the paper bonked on his head: "Come on! It says no name, not no concussion."
