For Your Teacher's Entertainment

Remember when you had new spelling words assigned to you each week and you had to do things with them at home such as writing them three times each, putting them in abc order or using them in sentences or a story.  Remember how sometimes that really began to feel quite pointless and you wondered why you had to use all those unrelated words in a story.  Well, I'm here to tell you that it was really all for your teacher's entertainment.  Scratch that!  Your teacher didn't get much entertainment out of seeing that you had written those words three times each but the sentences and stories, now those were quality entertainment.  Case in point, one of the stories my second graders produced as homework this week.

A student wrote an informational piece on driving from a second grade perspective.  This week's spelling words have been underlined.

infor mashoin on driving

1. put your clothes on.
2. close the door.
3. get in the car.
4. Be a glad driver.

5. their is know prize for driving.
6. their will be traffic
I have seen traffic you might have to go through a tanall (tunnel)
now you can become a driver

Some very sage advice.  Wonder if number one is included in the driver's ed manual?

  1. Ahhhh! I love it. And then during the spelling test kids can ask their teacher how to spell a word and she'll spell it for them! I'm told a certain 4th grade teacher used to do that.
