Kids Write the Funniest Things by Penny Zeller

 Kids Write the Funniest Things!

I love the things kids say (and write!) I've been known to chronicle some of the hilarious spelling sentences my grade-school children have written for their homework assignments on Facebook. Here is a compilation, in no particular order, are 13 of the "best of the best" guaranteed to make you laugh taken directly from the real-life spelling sentence notebooks…

1. She did not know that they do mathematics in the Delaware militia.
2. The tranquil tortoise uniquely remembers going to a unique university in a different universe to learn how to use a vacuum.
3. The mischievous lieutenant (who had been causing mischief), caught pneumonia a day before he had to pay the mortgage.
4. She is afraid the physician will persist with insistence that she get a porcelain cat.
5. The literate mayor will carry a sapphire into a quagmire.
6. One potato makes a whole plate of french fries.
7. The fierce flies forgot about the giant foot and their guide got stepped on.  (This one came complete with an illustration!)

 8. The mayor looked awfully suspicious when we found him adjacent to the butte in our backyard.
9. The book which you just read (the one that gave you a headache) is substantial.
10. The elephant will be frightened by everybody in the grocery store.
11. The cashier was courteous enough to give me a free chicken.
12. The president's spontaneous reaction while trying taxidermy while eating was not pleasant. (He threw up).
13. The laborious cavalier has a quarrelsome leopard that eats dandelions.

Amanda Stephan said...

Oh my word, that's funny! But I would really like to know where that nice cashier is so I can get a free chicken?! Very, very cute. Thanks for the laugh!

Lisa Buffaloe said...

Amanda, aren't those cute! I so enjoy the precious things children say and write.

Kudos to Penny for sharing!

Thank you, Theresa! Yes, my girls can come up with the funniest things! When my oldest was in first grade, her best sentence ever was: "I am 10 and my daughter is 8." LOL!

Penny Zeller said...

LOL, Amanda! I would love to know where that cashier is who gives out the free chickens too! Thank you so much for stopping by. It's great to see you!
