Students on Superheroes, Cats, MERS, and more.

Fair warning: this post might be boring for non-teachers. (Come to think of it, this might actually be quite boring for teachers as well.)

But these are some of my favorite results from my students over the last couple months on a variety of subjects. I really like getting insight into their thoughts, especially funneled into a foreign language they have a good but imperfect understanding of.

“Mers like camels. But it doesn’t like clean.”

This is from a very quiet middle school student who rarely speaks. I’m not sure if she has a (hidden) quirky sense of humor or was just annoyed at having to free write in English.

I had one class read a bit of L Frank Baum’s The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (our book is currently on an inexplicable Xmas kick.) Then I had them continue the story, or draw a picture, or include a comic. This is what one of the nicest girls in class did. Thanks for the clarification, Chloe!
