First day of school

The funny things my student's say...

Teacher: "Please fill in the sheet with what you would like to be when you grow up."
(Sheet is passed around and teacher gets it back)
Student wrote: "A football."
Teacher: "Student, please come here. Did you mean to write a football? Or, did you forget a word."
Student: "I want to be a football."

Later in math class...

Teacher: "What is the total number that the degrees inside a triangle?" (The answer is 180)
Student 1: "89!"
Student 2: "56!"
Student 3: "90!"
Student 4: "15!"
Teacher: "Don't guess!"
Student 1: "It's totally 9."
Teacher: "Oy."
