As many of you know, I am an elementary school substitute teacher. I have had the pleasure of subbing for my friend Chelice's second grade class 11 days this year. They are the sweetest, most loving kids I have ever taught. (Chelice was my daughter's 2nd grade teacher last year and we have become good friends since we moved back from Taiwan last summer).
Chelice recently gave the kids a benchmark test for writing, and the assignment was to describe the best day of your life. Here is what one little cutie wrote. (I changed his name in case his parents try to sue me!). I didn't correct his grammar or spelling.
The Best Day of My Life
By Sean, aged 8
My best day was on Tuesday Ms. Sue was our sub. We lernd about shapes. After that the class had free time. We had popcorn and punch. We did the congodanse. There was popcorn all over the plase. Then it was the end of school and we did not get any math. Then after that I went to Dash and playd doch ball and basket ball and my mom picked me up at Dash and we had pizza. At night sleped in my moms bed and her bed is warm and cozy. It was an adventure.
Ms. Sue DID pick up every piece of popcorn (with a little help from a few of the kids!). I let them throw the popcorn up in the air and catch it with their mouth! I guess we didn't get too much math done that day...hmmm.
