Journal entries . . .

My 3rd graders have, as do all the elementary students at our campus, a journal. We give them topics to write about 2-3 days a week. Today's topic was about Peace, Goodwill, and Friendship Week. They were to write about how they can keep peace with their friends. One of my students wrote this:

I can make peace with my friend's by playing with them. Who would like to join Sally and Jane's horse club? (names changed to protect the innocent :-) Now, inviting everybody like teacher's, boy's, girl's and younger & older kid's it's all about having fun. Not hurting, just living the life all recess time persides it's like you are a horse. There's talking about horses, playing horses, sometimes we even let people play as a enemy. It's so cool. Check us out on the playground we start this Wednesday.

Can you tell we just learned possessive words? Now everything that ends with an "s" MUST have an apostrophe!! When I read through this, I said, "Persides?? What does that mean??" She said, "You know, like, persides all this, we can do something else!" I, being fluent in thirdgradese, said, "You mean besides??"

I love how she wrote it like a commercial... "check us out on the playground". When does she get her website up and running?
