Cracking up!

Grading is one of my least favorite parts of teaching. Yes, it's important because it gives me feedback, but that doesn't mean I enjoy it (no matter how many colorful pens and markers I use).

Still, every once in awhile, I am in the middle of grading when I come across a gem of an answer that makes it all worth it.

You can ask my husband. He's usually sitting next to me watching Modern Marvels or How It's Made when I'm grading along silently and suddenly crack up and can't stop.

In this case, I was grading a worksheet where they ask kids to write a caption for the picture. There's a picture of a girl in a wheelchair. She's pointing ahead while a man pushes the wheelchair.

Most of the kids looked at this picture of a girl pointing and put something like, "Go left, Dad!" or "Let's go that way."

This girl- who is full of personality?

Yeah... our job rocks!

What's the best hilarious answer you've gotten?

  7. Love it!!! I love the spellings I get for things! One year a sweet little girl wrote about her dog. She was so proud of sounding it out. What she came up with was shit-zoo!! I had to laugh out loud and put that in my smile file!!!

  10. I hate the grading part, too. And I'm a Jenny, too! We already have so much in common! I'm also beginning a blog myself. Come visit!

  11. One of my recent favorites was the answer "tarditional" when giving two strategies to solve an addition problem. Love their cute little answers.
