Teachers are mandatory reporters right? So, I'm waiting for the call . In 3rd grade they have a list of vocabulary words and the kids write sentences containing these words each week. I'll give you a sample from DD1's list last week-
sudden- All of the sudden the dog died.
tunnel- DS was not going in the tunnel.
dust- There is dust in the bathroom.
struck- DD2 struck DS with a knife today.
When I asked her why she wrote the last sentence DD#1 said she "couldn't think of anything else to write!" ok, that's a good enough explanation for now....just don't answer that phone. (For anyone beginning to worry about DD1, she's ok there were other sentences about going into space, growing buds, ice cream and pizza and Ds being cute.)
