Excerpts from school scribblings…

This week Bookworm and Picasso brought home their school books for the year. As I flipped through the pages I was at times highly amused – and at others rather alarmed – by what they’d written. At times like these I can only imagine what the teachers must think! So for the enjoyment of all, I will share.

“Last night I ate nuggets on bread. They were yummy. I wish we could have them again. They were as good as McDonals nuggets” – Picasso. High praise indeed.

“On Sunday me and my family went to my grandmar’s house with our couzzens and had ice cream and donuts and chocolate cake and chips!!! But our grandmar had an olser in her eye” – Picasso. Felt like explaining to the teacher that on occasion we do eat vegetables, and poor Grandma did not have an eye ulcer because she suffers from some kind of vitamin deficiency.

“My school holidays. I got up so early and played ipad. I went to a random house and played there. One night burglar Bill went to rob a house” – Picasso. Hmmm.

“On the weekend I and my family put up the Christmas tree and the decorations. We got an early Christmas prezzent because a person on my house and it was a Christmas decoration!!! An angel decoration!!! And I put all my Christmas decorations in one spot on the bottom of the Christmas tree” – Picasso.  (He did, too – couldn’t convince him to spread them out).

The following is taken from Bookworm’s spelling books where he had to create sentences with the words considered, essential, calm.

“I considered to commit suiside.

“Life was very calm in heaven. Life was calm till it was essential to go to hell.”

I had to agree with the teachers’ note which read, “?? Theme??

Then we moved onto plurals, where he had written,

“There were heaps of ladies on the toilets.” Wonderful.

Then I saw,

“It is safe to jump off a cliff because there will probably be an acid pool below.

“It is safe to go up to strangers and have chats too.” Argh! No wonder the teacher had written ,”Is it opposite day today?” underneath.

Hopefully we won’t end up in the school counselor’s office 🙂

    Ha! Love it! My personal fave from my boy was when he answered and drew “underwear” as the answer to “Draw something lighter than these bricks.”

    And by the way, I know that the Counsellor would be delighted to see your boys walk in. But he is a bit loopy. Or so I’ve heard 🙂

      Ha ha, if they day day ever comes when they do need the Counsellor, I know they are in safe hands! 🙂 Underwear – well, yes, indeed it is lighter than a brick! Can’t argue with that logic!

    Ah, to get inside their minds…. My boy’s were also very interesting – discussions of zombies, a strategy for toasting marshmallows, and my personal favourite – what we did on Mother’s Day: “On Mothers Day we pland to Go to the riva for lunch. But it was too colD to. So we DiD not.” We live on the edge around here. You never know what might happen!

    So funny. My favourite was from last year “my mum left me at home and went pole dancing and a man drove her Home” – translation – I went and tried pole excercise (never again), daughter stayed home with hubby, my car broke down so gym instruction who i knew well brought me home. Was shocked that this was big enough to make it into the school journal! It was just another day but somehow felt I needed to explain to the teacher…….
