* SelfFulfillingProphecy: The crux of [[{{Jerkass}} Kathy's]] introductory chapter in the first book. Kathy hates everyone she knows because at one time or another, they told her something bad wouldn't happen, or something would be fun or taste good, with Kathy always angrily insisting the opposite -- but it's shown that her negative predictions only came true as a result of her own actions. The chapter concludes with Kathy's reason for not liking [[BreakingTheFourthWall you, the reader]]: She thinks that if you met her, you wouldn't like her.

* PrecociousCrush: Dameon has one on Mrs. Jewels. Jewls. "Love and a Dead Rat" handles that crush in a sweet and rather mature way where Mrs. Jewls says that she loves Dameon too (albeit in a platonic way) and explains that love is an emotion, not an item, so giving away love means that you end up receiving more love.

* SweetTooth: Maurecia loves ice cream, and it's noted that her desk is sticky since she's used it to stash some of her midday snacks. Mrs. Jewls even manages to invent new flavors of ice cream after being inspired by her.

* ITasteDelicious: Averted, or perhaps inverted, in an early story where Mrs. Jewls brings the students ice cream that tastes like themselves. Everyone remarks [[YouTasteDelicious how delicious their classmates taste]] (especially Maurecia, who bites Todd at the end of the story because his ice cream flavor is so good), but when a student tries his or her own flavor, they taste nothing at all. ([[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Which makes sense in a nonsensical, childlike way it's the taste you taste when you're not tasting anything.]]) The only exception is Kathy-flavored ice cream, which everybody says tastes like old bologna.

* ChildrenAreInnocent: Miss Nogard, who is bitter over a broken engagement and capable of reading thoughts, is asked to [[spoiler hold Mrs. Jewls' new baby. As she does, she realizes she's never read a baby's thoughts before. Curious, she decides to listen. Whatever she heard is left to the reader's imagination, but her bitterness fades as a result.]]

** One of the problems in ''More Sideways Stories From Wayside School'' gets deemed the hardest question in the whole book before Mrs. Jewls asks it. However, it gets skipped over after the students trick Mrs. Jewls into canceling the pop quiz containing the problem. The number of the question treated like this? Nineteen.
