Dear SMITH: Six-Words from San Ramon Second Graders

Friday, November 7th, 2008

By Larry Smith

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: nothing brings us more pride and joy when a teacher tells us how a class has taken six words and run with them. Jane Ware teaches second grade in San Ramon, CA and writes: “My second grade class has been writing their 6-Word Memoirs each week and from the six word sentences they started with, their new submissions are becoming more sophisticated. Any chance we could get them on the website? What an incredible opportunity for them.”

To Jane we say: Yes, we can. Here’s what the kids in San Ramon came up with.

I’m okay with my word memories.
Playing soccer. Kick hard. Win game.
Hit head, fall down, scream loud.
Video game; Playing it so awesome.
Meeting teachers. Learning stuff. Having friends.
I play ball with my friend.
I read every day. It’s easy.
Pokemon cards! Let’s play! Yay Yay!
Run fast. So tired. Must stop.
Not listen. So hard. Rather talk.
Play time at home so fun.
Vacation day: On Ship to Mexico.
Got bracelet. Looks shiny. School time.
Eat candy. Eat icy pops. Yum.
Playing Pokemon. Thunder bolt. I win.
Soccer game so fun. Too tired.
Fruits yum. Candy yum. Veggies yum.
Playing piano more fun than homework.
Birthday soon.Cake, presents, happy day!
Playing games. Getting tired. Rather sleep.
