In keeping with the season

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"

Thanks

Giving

Sing

Think

Thong

Sang

Wait a minute. Did i read that right?

Thong

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.

Thang

Sigh...Should i even bother?
