Tales from the 1st Grade: Cause and Effect

We're working on cause and effect in first grade these days. I've been using the series of books "If You Give a Mouse A Cookie", "If You Give a Pig a Pancake", and "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" to prompt the students to write their own cause and effect stories. Here are 2 hilarious ones!

Translation for those of you who don't read 1st grade phonetic spelling every day:
"If you give a pig a mfshit (math sheet, LOL) he'll need to get a pencil and a paper. He needs to write neat. He'll do a good job"

This is my FAVORITE! It is a very logical chain of events for cause and effect!
"If you give a cat some money he will want to buy something. He will buy a Pepsi. He will pee on himself and he will want to take a bath."

Ok, I was a little afraid that first one might by NSFW - glad you clarified!

I'm wondering if the second one has had a similar experience in real life?

I had to "conference" with him to figure out what it said! It wouldn't have been nearly as disturbing if he hadn't put mf (math...which he pronounces "maf") in front of it! LOL!
