The other day, talking shop, Austin said he'd always wondered why teachers seemed to like "the dumb kids who try rather than the smart kids." Now we know. Dumber (slower learners... or sometimes here poorer kids without resources) kids trying are just so darn cute! I love helping low level 14 year olds struggle through an activity with furrowed brows more than scolding higher level students for whining.
In that spirit, here are some of the cuter entries from this weeks' labor
The prompt for 2nd Grade (14 years old):
How's it going? Thanks for your letter. It made me happy. Do you want to know about my country, Korea? Here is my answer:
korea is a good country why? this country has good guy and ger.
what's your favorite food? my favorite food is curry. maybe your
favorit food a nacho that is very nice.
