Mention your name and your blog. What subject and age/grade you teach. What assignment these “quotes” are from.
Write down funny, silly, “no-duh”, wonderful, inspiring, deep things your students say. Don’t use any student names. It doesn’t have to be long at all. There can be any number of quotes!Link up is every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. If you are interested in co-hosting, let me know!
9th Graders also just finished Lord of the Flies, so I asked them to write what they think will happen to Ralph, Jack, Roger, and the littluns. Here are some of their responses:
“Roger might need to be seen by doctors to see if his head is ok”
“Roger should be put in a mentally insane place until proven to be able to interact with people normally”
“Ralph will probably get interviewed. This is because he was the leader and would have received more media attention.”
“Roger doesn’t deserve anything good. He was evil, and mean to other children.”
You can tell which character my students hated…..
My 7th graders are on their poetry unit. Monday, we talked about free verse and modernist poems. They were to write one themselves. I told them it couldn’t have flowery language, had to be vague and about a simple, every day thing. I mentioned (half-jokingly) that eating a sandwich could be such a topic. Well, one rose to that challenge:
“Sandwich by ….
Layers of food
No one can top it.
Lettuce has flavor galore.
Bacon sizzling and crunchy.
Ranch creamy and gooey
Bread white and soft
Put it all together and you get a nice BLR sandwich.”
