Kids say the darndest things

Picture this-

I'm teaching my kids about 2-D shapes. We are learning the names, playing a fun game with a catchy song. It all seems great. That is until one of my ESL kids gets hexagon and I ask him, "What is this shape?" He replies -

SEXAGON!

Now, how would you respond to this?
A. Laughter
B. Complete horror and shock
C. Straight face and reply with "No dear, it's HEXagon!"
D. All of the above.

I did D.

What made it worse was one of my other kids shouts to him, "No its not SEXagon...there's no S! Not SEXAGON!"

Thank God they are all six and not one of them laughed or got it. My biggest fear was one of them would go home and say "Hey Mom, Ms. Cavett taught me about this 6-sided shape...the sexagon!" Haha

I love my kids.
