My friend Elisabeth sent me this picture and accompanying story.
I have tried to check its veracity - and failed, but it made me smile, so I am sharing it with you, whilst the weather is still bad!
This picture was submitted as homework by a small girl. After it was marked and the girl brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage as a stripper. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the aftermath of the recent snow/sleet. This picture is of me selling a shovel.
Angela's Research Notes- depending on where on the internet you read this, the teacher's/mother's names vary enormously, and the shop is either B&Q or Home Depot [they don't have B&Q in the States, and those are green dollar bills!] So I seriously suspect this is a made up story, and it is at least 15 months old. [but still amusing]
However if you are a parent, just remember to always check your child's homework is done, and done properly!
Last month, I set a piece of homework where each question had a word in bold print, and the child was asked to underline the synonyms e.g. EMPTY void vacant seat bucket
One child [not the most hardworking in the group] had left the last question unfinished.
INDUSTRIOUS diligent inactive busy sluggish
When I asked about this, she said "Mum said we don't know what industrious means, Miss"
I'd already noticed that!!!!
