Did You Grade My Paper?

did you grade my paper by Bethany

Our 6-year old guest cartoonist is back with some very sophisticated humor. Imagine my surprise when she handed me her newest comic and I read the dialogue:

Student: Mrs. C., did you grade my paper yet?

Teacher: No.

Student: Why?

Teacher: Because you didn’t turn it in. HA! She really understands my job. 🙂
