Isabelle's spelling homework this week included writing a short story using nine of her spelling words. Why nine? I don't know. Ten is a nice round number. Nevertheless, here is what she wrote, since I am too lazy to generate blog content of my own. (This is an exact copy, including her spelling and punctuation. As you may have guessed, their words are culled from the current social studies unit.)
"The darkened room was lit only by the weakest patriotic light casting errie shadows across my decorated blanket. I, being a citizen, think the government should have a election spisificly on if children want brighter lights in there rooms they can. I personally know what's on my ballot! I am glad to know that posobly I don't have to go back to securing the closet string for light. That is why I want brighter lights. The End.
This story was compley made up and was done only for schoolwork, so in no way relates to real life. Thank you for reading this essay."
I think my favorite part is the acknowledgments. No relation to real life here, people. None at all. It's like the Law & Order of spelling homework, or something.
