when i was little,i always thought that school would be so much fun and i always wanted to go with my brother.
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...
I believed that after you finished primary school, you went straight back to playschool and started the whole procedure all over again until you were 20!!
i used to believe that your age determined your grade in school....if you were 5, you were in the 5th grade.
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.
I used to think that when I saw a sign "Open to the Public" that I wasn't allowed in as I was Catholic!!!
(I went to Catholic School not Public school)
I used to believe college cost 1 billion dollars.
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.
I used to belive that work was better than study XD
When I took home the infant simulator that my child development class had me do for a project, I took it to a grocery store. A little girl saw it and asked me if my baby had plastic surgery!
I have always been terrified of injections and in primary school I never took my sweater off because of the fear that the school nurse could come any time and give me one and I thought the sweater would protect my arms.
I believed, really believed, that when we were taught something in school for the first time, it was something that had just been discovered, and we were the first to be told.
I once worried myself sick after a first-school lesson that we'd have some terrible ice-related incident because no-one but my class knew that when water freezes, it expands.
When I was in kindergaten I saw a commercial (I think I misunderstud it) and it was a girl that said she had a child in second grade. I was terrified to go into second grade. Then when i finished second grade I was so relived that I didnt have a baby.
I used to believe there was no high school and when it was about the end of the eighth grade for my bro i started crying and saying "Georgey's leaving!" There was an awkward silence and then my parents and my bro started laughing and asked "Where is he going?" and i said "He's going to college!" and they said "No, he's not, he's just going to another school called high school." I said "Oh" and i went in my room so embarrassed.
