A book review

Independent work by The Girl. I am so going to scrap this!



Transcript (exactly as written by The Girl):

Dad's story

I did not like this book. It was boring and rubbish. The book is mainly about a dad who cannot read, and he can only write his own name. The boy in this story (Danny) hides school letters from his dad not realising his dad cannot read and he can only write his own name. zzzzzzzzzz. Sorry, I am dosing of because this book is so boring.

LOL! I love it when kids are honest. For Honors English, DS had to write a letter to the teacher during the first week and then read it aloud in front of the class. One of the things they had to respond to was a line of poetry. The class howled with laughter when DS read (something like) "I don't really like poetry, and I don't know what this means." Later the kids said they all agreed with him but their parents had made them write something sensible!

Big laughs... I have A Boy at home, who is honest too. Some of his little sayings have made us howl... Hope the teacher can see the funny side!

The best. I have a son (a senior) who was so shocked when his grade on his last paper wasn't good - me, too, he is a really good writer - until I saw that he put all of his "sassy" comments in his assignment. Ha! I wouldn't have been brave enough to be so honest! Love that you would share this...I should, too. (in your blogging class btw)
