Whilst teaching Language Arts and doing a dictation exercise, where they have to write a series of sentences given to them orally. (Reminder: My kids have learning disabilities and are below grade level in reading…)
Me: “Robert needed to have his deck scrubbed before the event.”
Me: “What is your problem?”
Me: “His DECK…he needed his DECK scrubbed.”
The assignment was to write a five sentence paragraph summarizing a short article about things that live on (and in) our bodies. This was my favorite response, for obvious reasons.
There are lots of bugs that be livin on our bodies. I can’t believe that they be hidin on yo skin and get in your hers [hairs]! But hey they better leave me alone cuz if they fuck with me, I’m gonna git em. That’s four sentences just like you said Ms. M. I can’t believe you made me read this stupid story about them NASTY BUGS so now I can’t sleep at night.
