I was volunteering in Boy #2’s classroom today and was filing papers when I saw something that made me laugh so hard the teacher said from the other side of the room, “You saw his essay, didn’t you?” I did. Here’s what he wrote: “I just love my Mom. I treasure her like gold. But something is weird about her. She is a very tall person for her age.”
A very tall person for my age? Perfect. Only kids can come up with stuff like this. Only a former teacher would nod her head after reading that, and then agree with the comments from the teacher instructing her student (my son) to include better transitions next time.
