Gas Games Are Fun

alexis.6yo.pe.gas

Six-year-old Alexis likes PE because her teacher makes up fun games.

Not that gas in PE isn’t fun.

Remember the cool little scooters?

Any game involving those is a perfect fit for flatulence. After all, breaking a bit of wind might provide a slight boost in propulsion, and it makes a pretty terrific sound effect. (Just don’t leave any skidmarks.)

And if you didn’t want to get caught underneath the parachute before, just wait until someone pulls the ripcord on one under there!

Do you think they put that hole in the middle of the fabric for ventilation?

Arghhhhh You Sure That First Answer’s Incorrect?

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.

A Baby Story: Grandma Gets Brutally Honest

When 7-year-old Nicolas was born, it was really awesome.

New world? Discovery? Peeing?

Really cool.

Your grandmother comparing your swaddled, tiny newborn self to E.T.?

Not quite as cool.

Thanks to Tina, the alien’s mom, for sharing with SKW.

Really cool.

No Wonder Those Bugs Look So Happy

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 leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com or mcfadden.chase@gmail.com.

Thanks, and happy Isexing to all!

Pulling the Rip Cord

You know the ol’ school yard saying: The smeller’s the feller… who was the second person to jump out of the plane.

A Butt-Kicking for the Ages

Brian wrote this story when he was a kid. His parents kept it. You’ll understand why. They had to be incredibly proud.

The moral of this story?

Talking mice are inherently wise. If one ever offers you advice, take it.

Just don’t bend over to take it.

Especially if you’re naked.

Be Honest: Farting Noises Is One of Your Top 20 Favorite Games to Play, Too

Kids love making lists, whether they’re letters to Santa or detailed explanations of their favorite things.

And kids are honest.

This is a terrific combination.

Cathy shared this list that her 7-year-old created for a school project. She explains:

You can imagine how proud I was to see Xander’s “Me Collage” displayed in the hall outside his 2nd grade classroom, where he listed all of his favorite things to play, and last but not least, at #19 is every 7-year-old boy’s favorite past-time… farting noises.

So Xander made a list, but he may not have checked it twice.

Farting noises has to be ahead of soccer guys, right?

Thanks to Cathy for sharing Xander’s memorable “Me Collage” with Stuff Kids Write.

HELPFUL REMINDER: Parent-teacher conferences are a great time to wander the halls and classrooms, whip out your camera phones, and snap pics of funny kid writing that you come across. Then send it to StuffKidsWrite@gmail.com. And please tell your children’s teachers about us, as well!
