Details matter

When you are a seven-year-old boy who hates to write, there is a giant difference between the following two assignments:

1. Write six of your 10 spelling words, each in its own sentence.

2. Write a story including six of your 10 spelling words.

The first assignment results in six painful sentences, each including one spelling word. The second gets you this (spelling words are underlined):

The cow and mouse went out of town for the week. The mouse burned her mouth and they ran to the doctor.

The end.

Efficiency, my friends.

Search for everything you need!



  1. He is one smart guy, let me tell ya! Thanks!

  2. It leaves me wondering what kind of hijinks the cow and the mouse where in to!

  3. They are a squirrelly bunch. ;)
