Teaching Funnies

My friend Katie posted funny things her students said/did on her blog and I really got a kick out of it so I decided to do the same. The ironic thing is, the students we write about could actually be the same b/c I teach 3rd grade and when she posted, these students were in 2nd grade! This is also a great way to remember all the funny things students say.

As I was grading some work tonight, I came across this...

The assignment was to use the word "antonym" in a sentence. It gave the students a definition: a word whose meaning is the opposite of another word.

This student (a boy) wrote: My sister is the antomyn of smart.

Brotherly love!

Guest Blogger

Well, because of igoogle, I now have to play a small role in this blogging world. Yes, this is not EJ, but rather Michael. As I explained to Kasey and Heather on Friday night (I was there for a fantasy football draft...I swear...very manly); my igoogle is linked to their blogs and I basically can keep track of the Morrison and Laughlin families on a daily basis. Yes, I knew that Mike was working this weekend and couldn't come to St. Louis with Kasey. Yes, I knew that Heather got her hair cut (and looks stunning). Yes, I knew that Savannah was very excited about going to school Monday on the bus.

Anyway, the real reason I'm blogging is because I just have to show off some cute picks of my wonderful family. Yuri, EJ and I had a great time on Saturday going on a bikeride down the Mississippi River Trail. We crossed over the new McKinley Bridge bike tressle and had a picnic lunch on the other side at the wonderful town of Venice, Illinios.
So, I know this entry is a bit short. But I look forward to the next time that I can "guest blog" while still retaining a small shred of my manliness.
