At the beginning of Kindergarten, my teacher told us that each week a student would become star of the week. That night I looked up at the sky trying to figure out which one was actually a kid.

I used to think that if you borrowed someone's pen you would write like them. I always 'lost' mine in 3rd grade to borrow one off the girl with the neatest writing. It never worked though!

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.

I was scared to death of the fire drill in 1st grade. I thought a giant drill with a flaming bit was coming for us.

In Kindergarten, when my teacher needed to talk to an adult or allowed us some free time, she would say "you may talk to your neighbors".

I lived in the country and had only a few neighbors, all of whom were older than me. I sat in silence because my neighbors were not in my Kindergarten class. I was extremely jealous of all the other kids because they must have lived in a really cool place to have that many neighbors.

My brother was six and getting ready for his first spelling test. He told me he had the system beat. He was going to memorize what was in the book! He seriously believed he was the first person to come up with this way of cheating. I didn't know what to say. I was younger than him, so I didn't know if this was cheating or what.

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.

I was one of those weird kids who loves going to school, and the teachers would always say I was making progress really fast.

I worried that by the time I was, say, twelve (REALLY OLD), I would have learnt everything there was to know and I wouldn't be allowed to come to school any more.

In the early years of elementary school everyone sat in the same class and sometimes the whole class would move to the gymnasium or to the library. In the higher grades segments of the class would go to Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver where I live. In reality they weren't getting on a bus to go to Richmond, they were going to enrichment classes... and I wonder why I was never invited to go. :)

I remember that when i was in 6th grade we were taught a lesson on the " man eaters of tsavo-thts some place in africa. The lesson talks about a lady who went out of her hut to answer nature's call and was killed by the tiger. I used to believe that " nature's call meant that the lady heard some bird call out and she went out to answer back the call. Coz as a kid whenever I heard a cuckoo sing I would sing back to it.

My name starts with a K, and when I was in preschool we had our homework graded. Everytime I received an O.K. I thought I was getting a 0%.

Until I was 14 or 15 I really believed there were Truancy Officers who checked up on kids who didn't go to school, to be sure they were really sick.

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!

When i was in the 5th grade my teacher handed the whole class a sheet of paper that had classes that we'd need to take for the 6th grade and SHOP was on the list. Me and my friends were all happy because we thought that SHOP class meant that we'd get to shop at a mall or something....so the 1st day of 6th grade i asked my mom for 100bucks..she asked why and i said "mom dont you know? i got shop class today". she laughed and gave me a quarter.....
