One thing I just love about being a second grade teacher is getting to read my students published stories. I always feel so proud when they actually apply what I've taught in their stories and usually I laugh out loud over several of them and run to show my husband. We recently did a Non-fiction unit where they wrote a book about something they were an expert about. There's some excellent advice in these second grade masterpieces. Here are a few of my favorites...
Oliver is an expert on roller coaster riding etiquette...no hats allowed.
Isaiah is an expert on the kinds of people that play football...they are obviously mean.
Chloe is an expert on the care of plants. If you plant a garden for goodness sake don't step on it!
Diairra is an expert on the clothing store, Justice. If you are trying on clothes make sure they fit
Langston is an expert on Dogs. If you have a dog, give it affection or it WILL turn on you.
