Our 2nd-grade daughter Emily was given the assignment to “Write a story about a soldier who sees a horse behind a tree — use all the words in the box [soldier, story, behind]. Here’s how it turned out:
Once I was a soldier in an old old fairy tale and in that fairy tale I saw a horse that got out of a farm. So the horse hid behind a tree so I ride it back to the farm. And that story was a good one wasn’t it? The End.
(The teacher’s red pen says “Yes.”)
