In my first PE class at my primary school there was a boy that thought that to get changed for PE we had to take all our clothes off. Now all the pupils from my former class are traumatized!

When I was in Kindergarten, I went to the first grade class for reading because my reading level was too high for all the Kindergarten reading books. We would do these dumb little packets every week with questions about the story and vocabulary and all that junk. I would always make 100's. A few times, though, I would make 99's or 98's. I would be so scared that if my parents found out that I didn't make a hundred, they would yell at me and spank me. So I would throw the 99's and 98's away, never to be seen by my parents.

Before I went to school my sister tried to explain what it was. I thought that it was just one big room and hundreds of kids of all grades stood there while a teacher stood on a stage type thing a taught.

When i was in primary school we had to sing the National Anthem at Assembly.I was never actually taught the words so you had to follow everyone else's words and I thort I was singing the verse right until my mum corrected me one day. In the verse where it goes
"Our land abounds in nature's gifts" i used to sing "our land arounds in nature strips" i guess it describes the urban areas!!

Before I was 4 years old, I was a very spoiled child. So when it came time to go to pre-kindergarten and we had to clean up our toys I was shocked, but to make it fun we sang this song. I used to believe that everytimg you had to clean up something, you had to sing the song. So when I entered kindergarten and the teacher said it is time to clean up, I started to sing to song, I got some dirty looks from the other children.

When I was in preschool, there was a pretend clock in the room. The hands never moved. Our teacher said if we didn't look at it, it would move. I believed her and I used to always peek at it out of the corner of my eye, thinking it wouldn't know I was looking and the hands would move.

When we explained to our son that he would be starting school soon, he asked how long he had to stay there. We explained he would go to school until he was about 16. He started to cry - he didn't realise he would come home every afternoon- he thought he had to stay at the school until he was 16

The lady who babysat me as a kid had three older kids of her own. I remember her once asking her daughter what she had learned in school that day. The daughter replied, "I learned that X equals 7!" I became convinced then, that all letters corresponded with numbers and this was something you had to memorize when you were in the higher grades. I spent the rest of the day wondering what number "A" was.

Funny thing is, I told my husband about this and he had a very similar experience after asking someone what "Algebra" was!

When I was in the first grade my teacher was teaching the class about our personal space. She asked us where a place that people shouldn't touch us is. I replied that people shouldn't stick their fingers in other people's nose.
