When I started kindergarten our teacher told us that they were going to have a fire drill in the room next to ours and that we would soon have a fire drill too. I believed that that they must be doing some kind of work on the walls using a drill that spit out fire so they all had to get out of the room when they used it. I wondered how it worked.

In grade school, I thought "Tardy" meat "Tidy." No matter how hard I scrubbed and primped, my report card never said I was "Times Tardy" more than 2 or 3 times. After I learned the right meaning, I decided not to waste anymore time on being neat!

At school we had ring binder rulers, and me and my friends thought that it said ring blinder ruler. We spent hours putting rings in the holes of the ruler and trying to make ourselves go blind by looking through the ruler

During class at school I always used to think that we were all sitting up to our waists in water. Whenever i dropped my pencil or anything i would have to hold my breath before i bent down to retrieve it so that I wouldn't drown.

When I was really young, my older brother told me it was illegal to write on the left side of the margin on paper...and so in grade one, when my teacher told us to number our paper by putting numbers in the left margin, I yelled out to the class, "No, don't do it! You'll get arrested!"
Of course, they all laughed at me...but I still believed it.

when I was about 5 I thought my friend was the same age as me untill she left pre-k to go to kindergarden. Then I thought she was smarter than me , so she got to leave earlier. So i started yelling at my teacher , trying to convince her I was just as smart as her. But when I was seven I found out why she really left. I was so embaressed!!!

One day at the super market, my older brother pulled down my pants. When I asked him why, he said it was because I bugged him. So on my first day of school, the teacher was telling us about something I already knew. So I walked up to the front of the class and pulled down her skirt.

When I was little in kinder, we started the year with a "practice fire drill" Which i thought of as what you would think a fire drill is.Then the next day we had a "real" fire drill, I thought they were gonna set the school on fire! :(

Up until I was in the second grade I understood multiple choice questions that asked "which number is bigger?" to mean which digits were larger. I would measure them with a ruler and circle the 'biggest' one. My 2nd grade teacher saw me doing this and asked why. When I explained she corrected me, saying they wanted the number that meant 'more'. DUH. Well hey, this sure simplified these tests!

When I was in grade school, I was convinced that a "Catholic" school (where I was) was really a special place for children with very low IQ's. The teachers and parents were all in on the big secret so that we wouldn't feel bad about ourselves.

On her first day at school, I told my little sister to take a week's worth of clothes and that she was going to a boarding school.

She was very pleased to see me at the end of the first day

When I was younger, I attended a pre-school (which I thought was actually pronounced "pretty school" until I was 8) was located near this building that had the front side made of limestone. Because this was the only side that looked green, I thought that it was mold or something and that the building's entrance was once the side that was in the ground. I figured that they rotated the fliped the building onto one side and the front was green because it was in the ground so long.

Once I was crying because I was worried about taking a test. Mom asked, "Did you study for it?"
"Yes"
"Did you pray about it?"
"I can't pray about it, that's cheating!"

My sister used to be scared to death of a day care center when she was little. She begged and begged my parents not to make her go there (though they never were going to).

It was on Elm street.

i used to think i went to preschool for 4 years... i think my logic behind it was that after kindergarten - 8th grade, you had four years of high school and four years of college. so i must have thought i had four years of preschool before all of that. i could also have just gotten years mixed up with seasons, i got a lot of things mixed up as a kid

My first day at school was really traumatic, I clinged onto my mother's skirt so that she wouldn't leave. She turned to me and said "you'd better get used to it because you're here for the next eighteen years". I really thought that I wouldn't see her again for eighteen years.....

I used to believe that your age was the same as your grade. For example: if you were 1 you'd be in first grade, if you were 2 you'd be in second grade and so one.

When i was 5, i thought that school houses were really big coulored warehouses in the country. I was disappointed that on cross country day we didn't get to spend the night there with the other members of the house.
