Default Kids don't know what a rubber stamp is!

Just had to post this... perhaps we can start rectifying this situation.

I am a substitute teacher and worked in a third grade classroom today. The students were working on a math packet and one of the word problems mentioned a rubber stamp in the problem.

I had half of the class ask me, What is a rubber stamp?

They thought it went on an envelope.

That is sad. Last year I donated a very large box of rubber stamps to my sons class. The teacher told me that the kids loved them! So many schools these days have actually lost art teachers because of cut backs. I feel compelled to do what I can to bring art supplies for the kids no matter how small.
