Funny Story from the Classroom!!!

I just had to share...

Last week, my students and I began studying how writing with strong verbs makes the action come alive in their own manuscripts.  We began thinking of words to substitute for the word, "climb".  After thinking of about ten words to add to our list, I suggested using a thesaurus to help us out.

One of my Fourth Graders turned to another one of my students and said (and I quote), "Dude, a thesaurus?? That's hard core!"

I laughed hysterically at the comment.  My class and I have now decided to purchase T-shirts with that quotation plastered on the front!  All real writers should wear one as well!  HA!HA!

God I love teaching!


  1. That is too funny! You'll have to post up a picture of your shirt when you get it!

  2. Okay, that's really, really funny. I agree with Mary that I want t see a picture of this shirt once you guys get it made!

  3. You have won an award on my blog!!! YAY! Come pick it up. :) It will be posted Monday morning.
