Below are some such beauties from a couple of our school spellings books (I think the evidence proves that teachers ask children to write a sentence for each word to be learned purely for their own amusement!):
"Dogs do not harm you so do not freak out!" A little self-persuasion here methinks.
"Some grown-ups are short because of their jeans." Could be true if you ask Trinny and Susannah. Bet they'd like a Snoob.
"My granddad had a yard to himself once but when we came he felt much more happier." Darling, not quite sure I get that one...
"The law says there are no floors in space." Whoa - watch out Prof Brian Cox! Or are we thinking that there are policemen in space?
"My friend Amy Whitewood (who?) likes flipping everywhere and especially on the family sofa and her bed." Does she now?
"The bus takes us to school sometimes." I know our car seems like a bus but actually it's just a car!
"It was my mummy's birthday on Sunday and she was [age]." NO! And no, I'm not going to type that verbatim in a blog!
"I got a really bad punishment for raiding the sweetie cupboard and having them in the night." NO NO NO! Not right for so many reasons!
"Sometimes Daddy says things he shouldn't." Oh yes?
"Sometimes Mummy gets cross." Hmmmmmmmm.
Enjoy your Saturday morning and please feel free to share any similarly original thoughts from your own children...!
