Tales from the 1st Grade: Church

We've been working on "staying on 1 topic" during our writing time. Most of my students are to do this relatively well. Today I worked with one of those students in an effort to guide his writing. Here's our conversation:

Me: Let's think of something you can write about. What did you do this past weekend?

Student: Went to church.

Me: Well, you can write about that. What do you want to say about church?

Student: We stay too long. They sing. It's too loud.

Well, I got him to stay on topic! :)

That cracks me up.

Sometimes Jack's perception of church is spot on: "We're gonna learn about Jesuuuuuus!"
Other times it's not: "I'm gonna ride Codey's kaseboooooard!"
