I forgot this funny tidbit from our one-hundredth day… Audra had brought in her collection of marbles to count. She diligently counted and recounted them with no issue. We even gave her a tray to use so they wouldn’t roll around the room.
At the end of the day, Audra raised her hand, I walked over and she showed me four loose marbles.
“Oh Audra, you better put those with your others, you don’t want to lose them,” I warned.
“No, Mr. ________, these aren’t mine…” she began.
I cut her off with, “Wait, I didn’t think anyone else brought in marbles…”
“They didn’t, someone has lost their marbles!” She exclaimed.
Not being familiar with this idiom, she didn’t get the humor in her statement, but I sure did and wanted to share the joke.
I shouted across the classroom to Mrs. D., “Mrs. D. someone has lost their marbles!”
She laughed and I repeated myself a few times for added effect.
We identified the owner of said marbles and headed home for the day.
