And my munchkins are getting goofy. Today I decided to have them write about the rain. One little boy was having a fit and I walk over to see what the problem is. He had written, “I like to play my W____….. He couldn’t figure out how to spell Wii. I asked him, “What does playing your Wii have to do with rain?” Now if he had been a little smarter and faster, he could have said something like, “I like to play my Wii when it’s raining……”
But he didn’t do that.
I told him that the assignment wasn’t, “Write about rain……..or whatever you want.” it was, “Write about RAIN.”
