Ready for more wisdom from a fourth grader?
As I'm picking up my class from recess and we're walking up to the classroom, a particular student says in a matter-of-fact tone, "Mrs. Hildebrand, I wanted to tell you that sometimes I get a random laugh attack during a lesson while I'm sitting at my desk, so I just wanted to let you know so you can be prepared."
"Oh," I say. "Well how about instead, you have self-control and stop the laugh attack before it happens?"
"Oh," he says. "Yeah I guess that's a good idea. I didn't think of that."
