Short funny quotes come from what my first graders say and from what they write ...
Once per week I take my students down the hall to a class called Computer Lab. There, they learn many skills, including how to use a computer.
Through various activities, they improve their reading and writing skills.
After they have spent a few weeks on the computer learning the basics, I give my favorite assignment ... I tell them to write me a story.
So as not to interfere with the writing process or flow of their stories, inventive spelling is employed … The students are told to spell the words as they sound.
As this point in time, the story is the most important thing, and not the mechanics of writing. So, after the story is written, I help them with only two items - capitalization and punctuation.
Here are some short funny quotes I believe to be exceptional stories from my funny first grade people. Talk about inventive spelling … First graders definitely know how to invent! lol
