Mrs. Cheney's students write


Many times when 8th grade students don't know how to spell a word, they will give it their best shot, right click on the misspelled word, then choose the first option on the list without a thought. As a result, I often get sentences like this one, from an 8th grader's autobiography:

"It was a good year, both fiscally and mentally."

Pretty sure he meant physically. How was he to know it didn't start with an "f"?

That might be my favorite one yet. I'm thinking of Alex P. Keaton as an eight grader, giving his fiscal and mental report. Fabulous!
