    Cougars

    A student was doing research for her deciduous forest project. She searched “cougar” to find images. A bunch of older woman popped up for the search…

    "Oh…oh no… Oh no! OH NO! This is not what I want!!"

    I laughed so hard I cried.

    What to Remember from 8th Grade

    Thank you Writing Prompts for THIS great idea! I used it in my class this week, and I thought this response was priceless…

    One thing I will never forget at this age, it involves hair, voice, and mind: Puberty. When you hit puberty you go through an awkward stage of life. Growing hair in many places…weird places. Voices also change, and in that change comes voice cracks. I will never forget one memorable occasion. We were practicing football and as QB, I said, “Hike!” On that moment it cracked and everyone heard it. Also in your mind you get thoughts about girls. About decisions you need to make for girlfriends.

    I’m not sure if parents forget it or not. I asked my teacher what it was like for her and she said it was inappropriate. So really I don’t know and I guess I will just find out when I am an adult. I don’t think I will ever forget, and hopefully I won’t forget.
