Today's Tale from the Classroom

My writing lesson today included a review of nouns, verbs and adjectives. Students have been working on publishing a book of poetry. Our poem today involved choosing a topic and listing nouns, verbs and adjectives about that specific topic.

My little darlings were writing silently and I was feeling quite proud of what we had accomplished..

Little Boy: Mrs. Lai, did you know that Rosie is writing a poem about her Mom?

Me: Oh, Okay.

Little Boy: Mrs. Lai, did you know that Rosie wrote bra as her noun?

Me: What did you say?

Little Boy: [huge grin] She's using bra as her noun.

Me: Rosie..???

Rosie: [annoyed] Well, she does wear one!

Their parents are going to loooove the final products.

So funny. I teach second grade too and I always crack up at the things my students say.
