Students' sentence

Posted by Amota Eromanga on August 3, 2012 at 4:00 PM

As a teacher entered the classroom, her students started complaining and telling on Tioti - one of their classmates. “Miss, please, put Tioti’s name on fatigue or detention. He deserves punishment for what he has done!”

“Why should I? What did he do wrong?” the teacher asked.

“He’s a stealer. He stole a buraa (bra) … Miss Reei’s buraa!” the kids reported to the teacher.

The teacher looked around for Tioti whom was only smiling as if things were just normal. “Did you do that Tioti? Why?” teacher asked and she wrote down his name in her fatigue notebook.

Then the bell rang so the teacher turned and left the class. As she walked away, some students ran after her with laughter, “Miss, sorry but what we said earlier about Tioti was wrong. We did that because he is a little buraareei (foolish) so that’s why we used him to construct a sentence.”

The teacher listened, and then walked over to the staff room. As she sat by her table, she thought about why students did that. She remembered her lesson yesterday on constructing sentences from breaking up a single word. Then she laughed, “Haahaha ….. Buraa and Reei together form the word buraareei. No wonder students jokingly blamed Tioti to have stolen Miss Reei’s buraa”

“I’m buraareei too!” thought and laughed the teacher “for not realizing that students have constructed a meaningful sentence in a more situational way.”
