Boy: "I don't wanna be single!!!"
Others: (Laughter in large quantities)
Boy: "I mean, you know, I want a partner! Reading single!"
And from a high school kid who is not in my class...
"Can I see what books you've got? I have already read everything in the library that I am potentially interested in."

"Now it's going to go write an email to its friends. A bee-mail!"
A thing I never anticipated having to say to a class
"Um, please leave the owl's pants on!"
Finally, the coordinating conjunction songs they so proudly created last week. (Coordinating conjunctions = for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so = FANBOYS.) This resulted from a conversation that went like this:
Me: "Okay, everyone's going to get a word. You're for, you're and, you're nor, you're but..."
Boy: "She said I was the butt!"
Me: "But. One t. B-U-T. You don't have to be the but."
Boy: "No, I wanna be the but!"
He most certainly did. Evidence below.
