When I was about 3 or 4 I thought that your age was your grade in school. On my brothers birthday I thought I'd show off how smart I was and tell them what grade they were in. (I'm the youngest in my family) All my brother and sisters friends were there and they all laughed at me like I was an idiot. I was so embarrassed.

When I was 5 I used to believe that the planet 'Pluto' was actually the disney character who had been banished from the planet because he had been really naughty, and sent into orbit. I believed that until I was about 8, when I had a Science lesson on the Solar System, when I then learnt that it was a planet of it's own. I felt really stupid when my teacher told the class that it was the furthest planet, and not a disney character. I wasn't the only one who felt foolish., though. Plenty of people mady 'daft' mistakes that lesson.

I used to believe that the only reason children went to school was to give their parents free time. I thought school was a babysitting service in disguise.

When I was at nursery school, our teacher told us we would be going into assembly for the first time, ready for when we moved up into real school. I had no idea what assembly was at all, and thought it was a museum with lots of white statues in it that you walked around. I was a bit disappointed when I got into the assembly hall and realised we just sat in a line and sang hymns!

I thought the room number to my classroom was supposed to be the same number as my age. I was 5 and the room number was 5. So when I turned 6, my room number was also supposed to change. :( It never did.

I used to beleive that sex ed was a class where all the boys and all the girls had to get naked and have sex. I was looking forward to it a lot and picking my partner. I was so dissappointed when all we had to do was watch videos and stuff like that.

When I was little I would go to day care and I would cry and cry and have a huge fit. I always thought that my mom just took me to day care and left and went back home. My mom never knew why I had such big fits each day, until one time I came home with a drawing of me at day care told my mom that's where I go when you go home. Then my mom had to straighten it all out and told me that she goes to work, so she can make money to buy me toys. After that, I never had fits when I went to daycare.

Before I even went to grade school, my brother told me that in Primary there were pirates. If you were bad, the pirates would get you. If you got something wrong, the pirates would get you.

I could just imagine:
"Whats 17+13?"
"...Umm...32?"
"YAAAAAR!"

I used to believe that the room number for a class was to indicate what grade was in the room. E.g. Rm. 5 - Gr. 5. I stopped believing this when I got to middle school and was in room 212.

When I first started school, during the last 5 minutes before school ended for the day, a person would come on the loud speaker and say, "This is your 5 minute morning before dismissal" and that was our cue to get our schoolbags and coats on but I always thought they were saying "5 minute warning before this missle" so I was always like, "AHH! HURRY!" because I thought that if you werent out of the school in 5 minutes, they would fire a missle and it would kill us all.

In elementary school we had those white fold-up lunch tables. In 2nd grade they folded them up and moved them off to the side of the gym. In Gym class our teacher told us to stay away from them as we ran around the gym because if one fell on one of us she would have to send us home in an envelope. I thought that was true and would be neat to try so I ran close to them. Luckily I didn't try to pull on down on myself.

At my elementary school, grades 1 and 2 would eat lunch and go up to the playground after they were done, and then at a certain time grades 3 and 4 would all walk down the hall at once to get to the cafeteria for their lunch. When they came down the hall it looked like a stampede to me. I believed if you didn't get up to the playground in time you'd get swept up in the "flood" of kids and get carried away.
Once two of my friends and I were standing in the path of the "big kids." Anna and Ryan were fighting and didn't notice the big kids. So I yelled, "ANNA, RYAN, THE 3RD GRADERS!!" and ran as fast as I could up to the playground. I still remember the way I said it... hahaha!

I used to go to a small Catholic school where one of the clases was Religion. Most of my friends, though, went to a public school. I didn't understand the difference between the two. When we would play "school", with one kid as teacher and the rest answering his or her questions, I would always become outraged that the "teacher" wouldn't ask Religion questions. I thought it was because the other kids were jealous that I got high marks in that class.
