The first report drafted by one of my students included this summary:
Iceland is truly an interesting country with interesting people and interesting traditions of which I will leave you to read about on your own.
As I sigh and circle the word *interesting* three times in red, I make a mental note to shun this overused word.
Four years ago, my cheeky son (then 14) wrote this farce report on Iceland just to shock me:
Iseland is cold. Amarica is worm. Iseland is a plas explowding with culcher and tradichin. Maybee U wil visit som day.
What is it about Iceland? Maybe it’s one of those places you must see rather than write about 🙂
On a better note, we have had some school success thus far:
Last week, everyone earned at least 90% on the final spelling test!
Words like crumb, subtle and acquire were even mastered by my 8-year-old.
Note to self~ The 2017-2018 school year: It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
