One day in first grade I missed a day of school and also that weeks spelling test. The next day my teacher told me I had a make up test and would need to stay in from recess along with another girl in my class who had missed as well. Never missing a test before I didn't know what a makeup test was so with my 6 year old brain I came to the conclusion that the other girl and I had been picked to try on make up to see how it looked. Until recess I was so excited to get to my "make over". I dreamed of pictures being taken, other kids comming in from recess surprised to see me done up. I was also plauged why I was picked how I was picked and the same thing for the other girl. Finally recess came, I walked to my teacher with a great big smile and was puzzled when handed what looked like home work. She stated that it needed to be turned in Monday and I could now sit down to take my test. My dreams of makeup stardom were shaddered.

When my mom told me I would be going to school in a few months, I got really excited. I'd never seen a school before as I didn't have any older siblings and had always stayed home with my mom, so I though the school would be so beautiful, with a big red ribbon tied to the front of the building. On my first day of school, I can remember being very disappointed that that wasn't the case.

When I was like 4 and in yr 1 we would have to tell our teacher what we were doing for lunch and give her our money to keep for us if we were buying it. However, there were children who didnt give her any money and got these little tokens which they got their lunch with. I was sooooo jealous of these kids as I thought it was like a secret group of which i desperatly wanted to be a part of. It wasn't until years later when this memory came back to me that i figured out that they were the children from poor families who couldn't afford to pay for lunch.

When I was little and first went to school I didn't know yet that I needed glasses to see distances. So when the teacher would write on the board I thought the writing was invisible and that everyone else was able to memorize the things the teacher had written. I wondered why I couldn't remember everything and was too embarrassed to tell anyone.

My dad used to think there was a spanking machine at school. You had to sit in a chair with 2 hand shaped paddles that continued at light speed until the red light turned on indicating you were sore. lol

When I was little, I used to think you had to go to a school that taught you where all the places in the city were. Like you would never know how to get to Target or Toys R' Us unless you took this class...What?!???

I used to believe that the big kids in high school spent all of their breaks jumping rope. When I'd asked my oldest sister what was the best thing about high school, she told me, "Skipping." I didn't know that "skipping" was slang for cutting class. I thought high school must be fabulous because she told me that even the boys skipped...along with the girls! I thought this until I actually started high school in Grade 8. I couldn't figure out why NOBODY was jumping rope. After she finished laughing at me, my oldest sister explain it all to me. I was so disappointed!

As a toddler, I loved the show Spot. There was this one episode where Spot goes to school, and he carries his lunchbox in his mouth, becuase he is a dog.

Well, I actually though it was the proper way to hold a lunchbox, so once when my Mom was out shopping, I saw a lunchbox for sale and put the handle in my mouth. The shopkeeper didn't seem too mad...

This wasn't mine, but rather one a math teacher told me:

We he taught 6th grade, he had a student come up and tell him, after the first day of class, that Elemtary School Math was where you learned to add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers, and Middle School Math was where you learned to add, subtract, multiply, and divide letters instead.

When we we're in Nursey school we all used to sit on the carpet and sing a song called "Daddies taking us to the Zoo tomorrow" I used to worry that the teachers had arranged this without making sure 1.my daddy knew that he was taking a class full of 5 year olds to the zoo and 2.wether or not he had the room in the car.

In kindergarten, one day our teacher told us to be on our best behavior because there was going to be a fire drill later. I had no idea what a fire drill was, but man did it sound cool! A drill that used fire to drill through anything! Imagine what I could do with that! I wanted that fire drill so bad - you better believe I was on my best behavior (I assumed whoever was best-behaved got the fire drill, of course). Man, was I disappointed later on that day.
