Oh, Those Kids

For those of you working with young students, I think you'll quickly relate to this story.  For those of you who don't work with young students, just enjoy it for what it is.  

I brought my class down to the bathroom before recess last week.  I can here one child in a stall banging about.  

"Calm down in there," I call.  "No jumping jacks!"

A giggle comes from the stall and the child nearest me begins to perform jumping jackets.  He stops with hands still outstretched.  "You know Mr. B., I've always wondered.  Which one's the "jump" and which one's the "jack"?"

I try not to crack up.  "That's the "jack"."

"Ahhh," he says.

OK folks.  Any of your own stories to share?
