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.

When I was little, my older siblings went to mixers. Mixers were when all the Catholic grade schools went into a gym and "mixed". I never asked what mixers were because I didn't want to be stupid.

So, up until I actually went to one, I believed mixers were evening cooking classes.

When i was in pre-school, about to go into grade school I was preparing myself for all the changes i might face. My biggest fear was that while in pre-school the teacher had you raise your hand, in grade school they might make you raise your foot. I practiced for the remander of preschool

I had an odd notion that Kindergarten was a school underneath a garden, and they made you eat veggies and drink tomato juice. I was frightened at the thought of going to a school like that...

When I was young, everybody talked about how I was going to kindergarten. I imagined that they were going to take me to this farm place, with a big scarecrow and vegetables. So one day I asked my dad what the kinder garden grew.

My Elementary School was a part of a University, so we always had student teachers, and there were mirrors near the cealing that people could see through, and could quietly observe. We called them the magic mirrors.

Whenever I wanted to do something bad, I couldn't, cause I was afraid that the monsters who sit behind the magic mirrors would eat me for being bad. I also thought that Santa used the magic mirrors.

my friend used to belief people who bought lunch were poor. she thought this because the people who bought lunch were all from apartments. (turned out, they were GOOD apartments, and it makes mroe sense to bring lunch if you're poor)
