mmmm, mmmm goooood!

My 8th graders are at it again!

From a spelling quiz:

The word was mediocre. The student wrote "meatyogurt".

During a grammar quiz I asked students to write three concrete nouns. One student wrote:

"cement, cinder block, granite"
Some kids have to be so literal.

Another kid wrote:
"twinkie, hemlock, cyanide"
I'd love to know what's going on in this kid's head. Or maybe I wouldn't . . .
