Things 2nd graders know ALL about...


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
And now for my personal favorite...
Langston is an expert on Dogs. If you have a dog, give it affection or it WILL turn on you.
 ...so love them beyond affection okay dog owners? Haha. I love my job.

Loved this. I think we have the best job in the world, HANDS DOWN. It can be rough at times, but the pros DEFINITELY outweigh the cons.

Oh my goodness, these are hilarious. I am seriously laughing out loud right now! Little kids are the best, I hope I can find a teaching job here in Chicago, because I need more of that funny magic in my life!

P.S. - After your post yesterday, I found a local wine and cheese shop with free wine tastings tomorrow evening, so that will be a fun Friday date night! Thank you for the wonderful idea!
