Favorite movie = Cannibal! The Musical

Hello all you wonderful Sangria Lover blog readers. My lovely wife asked me to round out the month for her with a guest post and, being the completely whipped husband I am, I said “sure.” In retrospect it is quite possible that I just wasn’t listening to what she was saying and unknowingly agreed to do this post. Let that be a lesson to all the married men out there: it’s probably best to listen to your wife, or else you will spend your day off writing a post for her. I guess it really doesn’t matter whether it was my lack of attention or completely whipped state that led to this post, here I am and there you are and I am a banana. What? Never mind.

So, all you regular readers are probably aware that I have been spending my weeks with sixth graders, which has been an interesting experience. I thought I would take this opportunity to show you guys some of the work I have received from these little balls of hormonal energy.

This first worksheet accompanied a lesson I taught on the parts of speech. I had the students build sentences using verbs, nouns, adjectives, and adverbs. Here is a mix of some of the answers I received:

This second worksheet comes from a lesson I taught on using quotations. Students filled out the blank comic strip and then translated the character dialogue into story form. I have included two of the comics below:

Sixth grade has been an interesting experience, but I am anxious to get back to my second graders. I hope you all enjoyed this glimpse into the psyche of a sixth grader.

Think you are smarter than a sixth grader? More creative? funnier? Try your hand at building your own sentence or making your own comic strip. E-mail me your creations:  t at pecflicks.com The best submission will get a very special prize from Mr. Tim.
