A Budding Author or Attorney, You Decide.

27 Mar

Every afternoon, upon getting home from school. I go through Miss Sassy Pants’ folder and review any work that has come home. I enjoy those few minutes getting a glimpse into her school work. How is she doing in Math? Getting more confident. How about Art? Pretty good if I say so myself.

Reading and Writing?

You decide.

This came home today:

Penguin for a Pet

Directions: Write an opinion on whether or not you think we should get a penguin for a class pet.

(as Miss Sassy Pants wrote: her words, punctuation, spelling,  etc.)

Are you crazy? a penguin for a class pet? I think a penguin for a penguin for a class pet is not a good idea. First of all, if we get a penguin we will have to get fish. And fish are stinky. Also if we get a penguin, it would have to be cold in our room. Finaly I think it would be a bad idea to get a penguin for a class pet because if it already has a mate it could lay an egg. As you can see these are my reasons to not get a penguin for a class pet.


If you do not know, Miss Sassy Pants is in second grade.


So what do you think, future author or future attorney?

Either way, I’m going to be in big time trouble when she hits the teen years.

    Ron says you don’t know the half of it. Sara is turning 16 this year and we have had our hands full with her since around age 11.

    She’s got a great imagination. Why can’t she be both, an attorney and an author?

    How cute! You have to keep all these and see how her writing changes over the years. Personally, I agree with her. You can’t have a penguin as a pet because it would be really cold and very stinky in that room :)

      I love that her opening sentence was, “Are yoy crazy?” She sold me with the stinky fish too. I’ll be hanging on to this one for a long time.
