Sometimes as a teacher, you decide to try to challenge your students. On a recent assignment on the book "L*ser", I asked my third grade students to answer this fairly difficult question:
On page 20, J*rry Sp*n*lli writes, "He expected recess to be something different, something new. It turns out to be simply free time. Recess turns out to be just another name for life as he has always known it. Only shorter. His first recess lasted six years. This one is only fifeen minutes." What do you think Sp*n*lli means?
I was surprised by the amount of kids that answered the question in the same way. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that all of the kids who answered in this manner happen to sit near each other. Hmmmm.....
Here are the unedited answers in question:
-I think sp*n*lli is a last name. Because it says Je*rry Sp*n*lli in the Book.
-I think Sp*n*lli is a last name.
-I think sp*n*lli is a last name because J*rry Sp*n*lli, sp*n*lli is after J*rry and that is mosly with ever last name.
-The arters last name?
-I think Sp*n*lly is a last name. I thnk Sp*n*lly is a last name becaus is ses in the book.
