As an alternative to the daily kindergarten journal writing, The Boy's fabulous teacher gave them a news assignment. They picked Good News or Bad/Sad News and had to write two sentences and draw a picture about their story.
The good news is that he dashed off two sentences willingly, with just some help from me sounding out the words. If you've been following the drama around here, you know about the new love of football. (Pssst... I am very close to being off the hook for most of the sports discussions around here)
If you can't see the photo very well (sorry, dark kitchen..), I'll interpret
THE SEHOCS LOST TO THE PATREOTS. THR QUORTRBAC WS INJRD.
The Seahawks lost to the Patriots. Their quarterback was injured. That was bad news.
And yes, those are shoulder pads and face masks in the picture. Remember, there are lots of fun activities to do when you get done with your news story, so why spend the whole writing time on your picture??
