That really made me crack a smile as I am a teacher~
Me as well, being that i am a teacher too.Encouraging Thoughts for Life
That is funny! sandie
What was the answer?
Depends on the hand signal. ;)
haha! So funny! :)
K'm with Ms. A...What is the answer?
LOL yes, what is the answer??
Sounds like a smart 4th grader.... BUT--I guess it depends upon the hand signal.... ha ha Teachers had better be careful when they make hard and fast rules.... Kids are SMART ---and there are usually ways to get around the rules!!!!!Hugs,Betsy
haha they never learn do they...8 school days left here...omg...
well....he kinda has a point.I'd let him go home early.
That is cute. I sure your kids will be happy once they are done with school for the summer.
I was a teacher for 37 years and guys like this make your day.
lol What was the hand signal and what was the answer?
Oh boy, how funny.Have a fun and safe weekend! xo
Love it!!! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!!
lol. That's a good question, smart kid.
LOL! Yeah, I teach too. At this point a fake silent lunch is about all we've got....and field day. :-)
I lay the odds - Not for hand signalling per se but for causing a distraction when they all should be eating their lunch.
Depends on whether its a naughty hand signal :-).
So how are you feeling about school being out? Do you have a lot of activities planned?
I find it so funny!What about following each other? I’ve just published a new post and I would love to know your opinion about it!Win a wonderful long dress from Shabby Apple
Got to love kids!
That was cute...and a very good question! I have to tell you, I totally admire the way you manage to enjoy all the parts of your life! You are an inspiration!
This is very attention-grabbing, You're an excessively skilled blogger. I've joined your feed and stay up for in quest of extra of your excellent post. Additionally, I have shared your web site in my social networksmy web site - Nathalie L. Warren
thats an intelligent question, really :)
Now there's a kid who can think!! Would love to have seen the teacher's face!
That is funny! I always thought I would love teaching children. I was a corporate trainer for a number of years and had the realization that teaching adults that are being required to go to a class by their employers, is not as fun as you might think. There were hand gestures upon occassion, as well. Especially in the class "Financial Fitness". Classes about money bring out the best in people.
LOL kids are hilarious! Thanks for visiting me! :) Followed you back!xo -S
Sounds like something my daughter would have said. Did you ask what 'hand signal'? Chuckle! Oh, what a delight they can make for the day ...Have a beautiful holiday as we pray for the troops that protect us, & those that have gone before us.TTFN ~Marydon
As a teacher, thank you.I had a girl tell me yesterday she didn't have to put her phone away if she was "putting it back together and turning it off" from where she dropped it while texting during class.Then she rolled her eyes and slammed her chair in when I asked her to put her phone on my desk. I mean, really. One more week...one more week....one more week....
hello, there!hope you are well. :)haha, this is funny. i studied early childhood... however, i can never be a teacher, either...hope you and your beautiful fam have a lovely wknd. :)
that is funny!
He has a point- depending on the hand signal. :) I am sure the last 3 weeks seem a lot longer for everyone. ~Jess
Haha funny anecdote! Kids are the best. Spanish Pinay
Hand signals mean different things to different people/cultures. The famous 'V" for Victory hand sign is a porno/swear word in one culture and an easy way to get yourself beat up if you flashed it to the wrong person.
In my years of teaching, I saw many a hand sign exchanged at silent lunch. Kids can be so resourceful, can't they?
That's a good question really! At least he is thinking outside of the box as a way to communicate with his friends!
Annmarie, My hats off to teachers...especially those who really care about their students and who truly engage them in learning. To be a great teacher, you must be dedicated, creative and hard working all while being a leader. I taught trainable mentally retarded children when I first got out of school,(the term used back then), and in 2 years I saw the best and the worst of teaching. But as this hand signal 'story' indicates, one fact stands...NEVER underestimate the children with their capacity to learn and to innovate! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
It's a great question, and perfectly logical. I wonder if the teacher was able to keep a straight face after hearing the question?
What a smart kid I thought that was cute. Have a great weekend.
Now that's thinking outside the box :) Have a great weekend!
This is very true...and also make you wander how they carry out 'quiet' time with hearing impaired children too??
Haha! Kids are so funny aren't they? Thanks for following, I'm now following back x :-)
Kids! They always keep us on our toes!
I know you don't have the time, but thought of you anyway for my writing workshop hop. Maybe check it out?http://sandrasfiberworks.blogspot.com/2012/05/sandras-writing-workshop-hop.html

Lol.. Glad I'm not a teacher too!
Thanks for dropping by in my blog and leaving nice comment. You seems to have an interesting blog, judging by your followers. So I am sure that I will be coming back:)
BY the way, I don't think I can be ateacher too, coz although I am very patient with the elderly, I am not so clever with children:)
Hey. Just dropped by to let you know my writing workshop hop is up for a good week -- you mentioned you were going t try and get to it tonight, so no rush! I'm leaving it up as I know links are slow to start so giving people some time. That will be my turn around, anyway, a good week. Have a great weekend and can't wait to see what you link up!
As a former middle school teacher, I can only imagine "silent" lunch. What a novel concept. Our lunch room was at a multi-decibel pitch from beginning to end of the period!I would have voted for "silent lunch" with hand signals any day!!!
That is so cute! Excellent question, indeed. :)
lol I can see how that could be baffling.
Who is smarter than a fifth grader? Your fourth grader, :)
That's too funny!

Smart kid! Thanks for following my blog. Followed too!
Have been in the classroom for a good number of years but students never stop to amaze me :)
Kids never cease to entertain :). Makes you want to wring their necks and hug them at the same time.I won't even venture a guess as to what the hand signal was...
never heard of a silent lunch o.O can you please explain?
Children often test our patience, but always bring us joy! Thanks for the great post & for visiting & commenting on Saved by Grace!God bless,Lauriehttp://savedbygracebiblestudy.blogspot.com/

Yes we are eager to know what the answer is..
I love remarks like this from children (as long as they are cute). I would not have the patience to be a teacher either!!!
What a clever child!
hah, that made me smile :) even the teacher part of me!
In my ninth grade drama class, the teacher would get so mad at us for talking, but encouraged those doing sign language. I hated it, because it was louder than the talking. These girls wore about six bracelets each, and these bracelets would clink, and clink, and clink...Danielle @ Royalegacy
Kids are so cute :) I'm a teaching assistant for small children and they always make me smile :)
kids ask the cutest things
That made me laugh--as a parent AND as a teacher!http://anothertiredmommy.blogspot.com/2012/05/at-least-i-have-pasta.html
Was there a prize contributed to being silent during lunch?
haha kids!Your follower from the Philippines. =)
now that is cute!
That kid is going to go far in life. Mark my words!
Presuming it is a good hand signal or a nauty one. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Hehehe! It depends on the hand signals!
Haha! That made me chuckle. I'm a new follower from My Life as a Reserve Army Wife. I am a teacher and at our school at this point in the year if a student gets in trouble, they end up with out of school suspension. So, our kids can get in trouble even with only 8 days left. They love to push buttons, especially at the end of the year. :)
