I am required to have my older students write a diary entry each week. They don’t appreciate the extra assignment, but its good writing practice and helps them apply their English to their everyday lives.
I can always tell which students actually put effort into their entry and which ones hurriedly wrote the required amount of sentences quickly before class.
As I was reading this weeks diary entries about favorite animals and favorite movies, I stumbled upon a particular entry that made me laugh. This poor 4th grader is a little stinker in class, but he sure brought a smile to my face today.
