Just For Fun

The following lines, taken from student writing samples, are provided by NWREL to trainers of the 6 + 1 Traits of Writing. I always share these with teachers at my training workshops for a bit of comic relief. Since you all love the student metaphors and similes posted by Stephanie, I thought you might also enjoy these. Besides, with all the holiday hubbub, it's the best I can do today! ENJOY!


From Student Writing Samples


• Space . . . the finnel fruter . . .
• The
ride I hated most at Disneyworld was 20,000 Leaks Under the Sea
• Goodby by now, but remember, I’ll be back next yer with more brains . . .
• My gramma’s ring is too small for me now but I’ll always have her dangling from my necklace.
With caller I.D. you know if it’s a salesman or a hated friend.
• I’m a bad writer, so I hope that this is enough to convince you.
• There are many in sex in the rain forest

• …the genital breeze…
• We were stuck in bummer to bummer traffic.
• It’s me. Your breast friend.

• I would change the rule about runing down the hall. Example, if your butt is
on fire are you ever going to run…
• Jeffery Dahmer was one of the greatest cereal killers of all time. . .

• Do the ninedickmanover to see if the person was breathing.
• She coulden’t even spell “culdn’t” Her spelling was abyzmall.

Nisa said...

Oh my! lol! What a funny way to end the week! 20,000 leaks under the sea... Haha!

Catherine Denton said...

Those are hilarious. Thanks for sharing!

Jemi Fraser said...

I love those ones :) I get some great ones from my students.

Roxane B. Salonen said...

I love the imperfection of kids, especially in written expression. Thanks for sharing! A fun way to pass the time in this snowbound state. Yes, I think we pretty much took it all away this time! (Would have loved to give to the needy...)

Alexia561 said...

Too funny! Thanks for sharing, although I'm torn whether I should have laughed or cried over these "abyzmall" examples. *L*

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Frankie - I always crack up over those ones too. Hilarious. :)

Nisa - Hahaha! Hopefully they can still surface.

Catherine - Thanks for stopping by today.

Jemi - Aren't they fun? I should be better about recording some of my student funnies.

Roxane - I can't decide whether to be wishful or thankful regarding our lack of snow this year.

Alexia - I know what you mean! :)

Jennie Englund said...

I love all those! Is there any end to inventive spelling?

One year, I scored a senior paper on the "Untied States." Yes, over and over again, the States were untied.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Woohoo! I love the last one- my students sometimes come up with extremely creative spelling, but never quite in that context.

Yay for student goofiness!

Tabitha Bird said...

LOL! What more can you say? :)

choco (In Which a Girl Reads) said...

Hahaha. Hilarious but so cute :)

Tamika: said...

Those were priceless!

Mary Aalgaard said...

Laughed out loud, practically woke the kids this morning. Thanks for the good humor. My favorite is the "breast friend." OMG! So much fun with words

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

OMG...the ninedickmanover...does it get any better than that? hahahaha!

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season.

Solvang Sherrie said...

Hilarious. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to pass this post on to my teacher friends.
