My teacher Always Says… Linky Party

Mrs Bainbridge is having a fun linky party, she says, ” We’ve all got those “things” that we say.  What is something you always say to your students?  Maybe it’s something cute that you love… or maybe it’s something that you heard them start to say to each other that made you go ‘uh oh!'”
This is a funny topic for me because I seem to have a million…both good and bad.  The better ones, “Don’t just sit there like a bump on a pickle”….or “You get what you get and don’t care a bit”
The less good ones, “Really?” (insert sarcastic tone)….or “It’s not brain surgery”…eek!

  1. Thanks for joining! 🙂

    I say something similar to you- "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"… by the third day of school (hahaha!) all I have to say is "You get what you get…" and they all finish it!

  2. i took this from my mom and it ALWAYS works on those minor boo-boos or even some more serious ones when you are trying to calm a child down…
    "don't worry, it will be gone by the time you get married. Are you getting married tonite? Tomorrow? Next year(for those big ones)?" It ALWAYS makes them stop to think and then look at me like I am NUTS and then smile even for a second.

  3. I have something very similiar!! "You get what you get, and you don't get upset!" Cause some of my little guys could get VERY upset!! haha and that one always works!

    And a not so good one, my afternoon group, that was basically ready for kindergarten in April, before going outside I would say, "it's not my time, it's your time" while waiting for them to show me they were ready for the hallway. When the students said it before me, I knew it wasn't good!

  4. When students want to tattle (which is most of the time), I always tell them that I don't take tattles until 3:10. School is over at 3:00.
