These were my instuctions for the 3rd graders today:
"Class, these papers have the word 'Thanksgiving' written on them. You are to write as many words as you can think of using the letters from the word 'Thanksgiving.' You may begin."
Ten minutes later i'm checking over a child's list"
Wait a minute. Did i read that right?
Stiffle a laugh (how old am i anyway???)
"Umm, hun, you might wanna take a look at that fifth word in your list. There's no 'O' in Thanksgiving."
"Oh YEAH! That was supposed to be Thing!"
So he re-writes it. I check it later.
Sigh...Should i even bother?
