"Eh, Mrs.Danisi, you watch the cartoon "Tippy Toes"? You know the one with the cat and mouse Tom & Jerry?"
"Mrs.Danisi, you scared us." Why? "You scare us when you talk to us and your eyes get all big."
"All teachers do is just get the kids in trouble and make you have detention and get spendid. They always tell you to sit down and be quiet and get your reading book."
"Uh-oh, something's wrong with my stomach. It's bouncing."
"I'm not gonna rest until I have freedom!"
"Mrs.Danisi, did you watch the movie the Smurbs? It's kinda like about little blue people?"
"Oh dang! It smells like snails out here!" What do snails smell like? "You know, poop."
"At recess, I had a really lotta fun."

Teaching my kids that "y at the end of a short word says 'i'." Jose: Oh man, that makes me scared when you teach us that."
"Mrs.Danisi, I always make my baby sister laugh. You know how? When I play "Peek-Boo".
Jose has been using air quotes a lot. I asked him where he learned to do that. "Oh, learned that in 1955, when I was born."
David: My teacher taught me I was borned from the monkeys, in 1980."
Taking my last bite of my morning snack while giving directions and Donaven yells: "Don't talk which your mouf full!!"
