it's called a pool

When testing a patient's ability to create sentences given a vocabulary word, I gave him the word "car" and a picture to look at. He looked at the picture and then said, "When you have many kids in the car it's called a pool."

It'll be easier on me

As I was preparing my patients for my leave I told one 5 year old, "I won't be here for many months." He looks down and rests his chin in his hand, ponders silently for a minute and then looked up at me and said, "Well it'll be easier for me."

Isn't that right Rachael?

As we were ending our therapy session the sister of another patient came walking into our therapy session and promptly asked me, "What do you do in here?" I answered we work and learn. She then looks at my patient and asks, "Well you play games too?" He answered, "Yes. We want our education to be fun. Isn't that right Rachael?"

a feet checker

I was testing a 7 year olds expressive vocabulary... I showed him a picture of a scale and asked, 'What's this?" His response, "A feet checker, it tells how strong your feet are."

I showed him a picture of a totem pole and asked, "What is this?" His response, "A facer."

I gave him a picture of a woman jumping hurdles and asked, "What's this?" His reply, "a jump racer."

it got too foggy

While babysitting my 4 year old niece Hallie, I gave her mint chocolate chip ice cream with two Oreo cookies. As she was finishing her snack she said, "Auntie Rachael, I don't want this cookie it got too foggy."

it's not rollish

While working on negation in sentences I gave an 8 year old patient an open ended sentence to complete. A box cannot roll because... her response, "it's not rollish."

I gave a second sentence to this patient... A chair is not transportation because... her response, "It's not flexible."
