Snow tigers, sharks, and bears- Oh My!

Always looking for a good journal prompt, I thought I would ask my class to write about 'How Mr. Buckley broke his leg.' Thought you might enjoy some of the theories...

'One day a man coled Mr. Buckley went walken. He chriped over a banana. Auch! he said.'

'Mr. Buckley was hangcliding in the USA. He fall down a 500 meter clifd and brack his leg. He was on hafe way down the hill. He was very sad. Mrs. Buckley ran to him. The end.'

'Once upon a time Mr. Bukley was scoobadiveing. He spyed on a great white shark in the ochean. A shark snuk behind him and bite his leg. When he came home he was limping and Mrs. Buckley said "You got bite by a shark." Then he went to sleep.'

'Once upon a time, there was a man cald Mr. Buckly. One autum Mr. Buckly was joging in the woods then a bear came and said I will eat you. He said No! No! No! he shouted and run run. Ok he was dashing thru the woods so fast that he triped beside a big big big rock. He had to go as fast as he could to the hospital and he did and they locked the door so that the bear cold not get in. They checked him from top to bottom and they said you have to stay here. Why asked Mr. Buckley. Because you have a broken leg. Oh, he said. I must fone my wife so he did. Mrs. Buckley came strate away. She even brot him a present it was a tedy bear. Poor you she said and they lived happily ever after. The end.'

'Mr Buckley was on a 500 meter mountain and saw a snow tiger in the middle of the mountain and it was going to the other side of the mountain and Mr Buckley followed it and when they had got to the other side the tiger saw him and bit his leg.'

And this kid's story wasn't so great but his intro was my favorite: 'Mr Buckley was a kind smart man well kind of smart well on with the story.'

Does it make you miss your classroom days, Mirster Hood? Were your fingers itching for a red pen as you read?

These kids must read the Bible! "No, no, no!" and "Big, big, big". I like the repetition for emphasis. Not to mention the Paulean useage of sleeping as a metaphor for death: " 'You got bite by a shark.' Then he went to sleep'. Poor Mr. Buckley. And he didn't even get to go to Memphis before sleeping forever.

Awesome, how can you not love an assignment like that. Create a story based on a true ending. I wish I had been given the opportunity to participate. Is there still time... I think the next installment should be about what happened to your friend traveling alone..lol
