Anyway, here is a sampling of what these children have written under the essay topic: "Something New I Have Learned"
"First of all, I did not know how to cook, then I got a cup and I poured a smoothie into it. Then I put my tongue inside the cup and put the cup with my tongue in it inside the freezer.
Next, my mom saw me and said, "OH my gosh honey are you all right"! Yes mom, I'm all right. "What on earth were you doing"! I was doing you a ice pop tongue freeze."
"Once I learned that sometime too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Like my mom, she loves everything clean. Who doesn't? But once there was a stain on the sofa she scrubbed so hard she ripped it. Ice cream is a great thing but if you eat too much of it you will get a stomach ache, trust me. I know. Sometime something is so good you can't stop. But if you don't stop something bad can happen with you."
"When I was in about 2nd grade I figured out India was in Asia. When the teacher said INdia was in Asia I was shocked. In my head I was like "I think this is all a big mistunderstanding." But when I looked at the map and saw it was in Asia I knew it had to be true."
"OW! I burned myself with hot oil on a heated pan. First I wanted to touch the hot oil. Then BANG! I got burned! At the end I learned not to touch hot oil."
"Don't put a pencil in your shoe. 1. It will break. 2. You will need to get a new pencil."
"Don't put your finger in a ducks mouth. It hurts. It was so so funny my 6 year old brother put his finger in a ducks mouth."
This next one I am going to summarize because she had so many things that she learned that ...well...it's just best this way.
This little girl learned:
- Not to chew my hair
- not to go in the big freezer at the store for if someone shuts the door and you get stuck in there you will die
- that I need to mind my own business.
And last but not least...
"I learned that you can NOT ride on a seahoers. becoes they are little an you are Big and hevi they are litelr than your pensole."
