Twisted Sister

Or:

Subjects and Predicates Assessment For My 2nd Grader.

The little one is a trip. I'm telling you - this girl was BORN like this. I have to share her answers with you. When she shared what she had written, we all laughed so hard that we couldn't concentrate until we had rested for a bit. Here is what this part of her assessment looked like:

'Complete each sentence by adding the subject or predicate that is missing.'

1. ____________ dug a hole.

2. The birds ______________.

3. A big truck _____________.

4. The little baby _______________.

5. ______________ ate my lunch.


Okay? Easy enough, right? Here we show her answers in purple:


1. I dug a hole.

2. The birds die.

3. A big truck falls.

4. The little baby vomited.

5. My cat ate my lunch.


I'm just not sure what to make of it. My older daughter was all flowers and smileys and butterflies and giggles. THIS one, though. She is a plumb trip. On the plus side - she spelled 'vomited' correctly.

"Spelled Vomited Correctly."

With her darker side and good grammar, teach her how to write well. She's suited for it... ;)

She is so cute. I should put up one of Kora recent filling sentences things. We bought her some work books from Fisher Price from the dollar store and you shoudl have heard her first answers on some of them. LOL.. but glad to know she is an A student in writing.

Yes Billt - she is my dark one with a wickedly caustic sense of humor. My girls are complete opposites. They're both just awesome in their own way.

Tweetey - LOL. I try hard not to censor them - even though I'm thinking inside, 'Shouldn't we try to make this nice and pretty?' ;-)

Dirtcrashr - her daddy has actually (affectionately) called her that. lol.

I'm glad that you can appreciate it, Wordsmith. Not many people know how to take her. I tell them - just enjoy it, she's a lot of fun!

Heh--that's too funny!

I'm so competitive, I had to ask Thomas to try it (he's a second-grader, too). He gave the conventional answers (A man, flew, drove, cried, A boy). After your daughter's creativity, I was a little bit disappointed.

Silly me!

Karen - thanks, lol! I was taken aback by her answers - not very nice, are they? The birthday card that she picked out for Mom-Mom the other day is just a trip. Oh. She's bad. ;-)

Thanks Kate. Are any of your kids whacky like mine??
