Things That My Students Ask Me on a Daily Basis

And the responses that I wish I could give.
  1. Are we gonna do work today?
    Nope. Today, we're taking a much needed break. Just don't ask my any questions from here until the end of the period.
  2. Do I have this right?
    No. Put seven times three into your calculator. Does it give you 48? How does that even make sense?
  3. Can you check my work?
    No.
  4. Can I go to the restroom?
    Yes.
  5. What's today's date?
    😒
  6. When are we gonna use this in real life?
    Never. But you need it to pass the eighth grade according to the state of Texas.
  7. How old are you?
    83
  8. Do you have candy?
    Do you have candy?
  9. Am I passing?
    When you must ask this question, there's a big chance you're not. You probably have a grade somewhere between a 69 and 50. I can't give anyone lower than a 50. It's unfair.
  10. Can you play music?
    Yes. I am taking no requests.
  11. Miss, I don't get it...
    That's not a question.
  12. Are you mad?
    Yes.
  13. How much longer til the bell?
    I've been asking myself the same question since class started.
  14. Do I have to do this?
    No. You don't.
