Six-year-old Connor wrote about his family’s trip to Six Gun City in his “What I Did This Summer” journal.
Judging by that waterslide, it looks like a really fun place.
Who knows? Sex Gun City might be fun, too.
No word on what the waterslides are like there.
Thanks to Erica, Connor’s mom, for sharing his summer memory. Check out her blog here.
Please share your image of a funny piece of children’s writing by submitting to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do, we’ll let you go down that slide.
Or give you a ticket to Sex Gun City.
Whichever you prefer.
Thanks to Jen for sharing this pic of her 7-year-old son Ty’s social studies test.
First off, we can all agree the teacher using an X to mark that first definition incorrect is ironic, right?
We can also agree that answer would have never been marked wrong in Pirating 101. (And by the way, in Dora the Explorer 101, the only acceptable response would be, “Loud, incessantly-repetitive thing that annoys the frickin’ hell out of anyone older than five.”)
Ty, your thinking is the real treasure here.
Well played, matey. Well played.
Jan is a kindergarten teacher. She sees lots of great stuff kids write.
But Jan’s own 5-year-old son brought this one home from school. In her words:
“Glad to see phonics is working. I’m a proud mom.”
You should be, Jan.
In this case, Ii is for Impressive.
If you see an impressive example of stuff a kid wrote, snap a pic with your smartphone and share it with the followers of SKW! Please email to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, and happy Isexing to all!

Lief is a clever nine-year-old who (intentionally or not) seems to be poking fun at the idea of setting weekly goals.
This is what he wrote in his agenda as his goal for the week:
I am happy to report that Lief did, in fact, achieve his goal. He remains upright.
Thanks to Lief’s hilarious mom, Lorraine of Worn Ragged: Mommies on the Edge, for sharing this with us.

When Chrissy Irwin’s sister was in second grade, she had to keep a journal.
One day Jillian and her classmates had to write poetry.
It seems incredibly insightful.
Long live logic. And kids who are funny in spite of their teachers.
Do you have any writing my kids that you’d like to submit?

Eight-year-old Cameron brought his books home from school in June. His dad, Lloyd, found this:

This year, I evidently forgot to teach students that you do not hyphenate one syllable words if you run out of room at the end of a line.
My (cl)ass and I are going to have a stellar vacation, thank you very much.
You know the ol’ school yard saying: The smeller’s the feller… who was the second person to jump out of the plane.

At one elemantary school, second graders have to write birthday letters to their classmates. If a birthday falls on a weekend or holiday, students celebrate their un-birthday.
Check out this shiny, happy letter:
Personally, I prefer a shiny star …
I’m not sure I want to know where the half-erased “3 Dogs” comment is going …
