Writers write things they want to remember.

That was my mini-lesson main idea for writing workshop today and apparently I didn't do the most fabulous job of conveying my expectations for this project...which actually turned out to be pretty hilarious.

Here are a couple of the things they wrote:

  • "I have to remember my birthday or I'll just have to stay seven again. And I have to remember Halloween or I'll have to wait another whole year for it."
  • "Make sure you always spray your lizard or its tail will fall off. [note picture of lizard with brown tail]. If his tail falls off, it doesn't grow back as nice as the first one."

Crap..... Scott and I are both laughing out loud at the lizard comment. I think that I want to be an elementary teacher.... just so I can laugh at my kids. Oh wait, that probably isn't a good enough reason.... I guess I'll just keep giggling at my own kids!!!
