Diary of a......

This year, I read a series of books that my students loved. There are three books in this series: Diary of a Fly; Diary of a Worm; and Diary of a Spider. The kiddos loved them so much, that they decided to write their own versions of these "diary" style books. I read page after page of random versions. A few of them were actually pretty cute. Here is an excerpt from one of the more creative versions.

Disclaimer: I DO teach them punctuation, capitalization, and spelling......sometimes when they write for fun, they forget to transfer that over!

"My tummy says yes, but my heart says no!"

"They're just jealous because they don't have a special fruit friend."

"Because I still get spanked and I don't have a beard."

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought this was hilarious?


  1. That is hillarious. I enjoyed that and would like to read more of this diary entry. What a creative kid!

  2. I can guess who wrote that... I loved the "I'm not a man" portion... You are such a good teacher!!! Your kids are so creative, love it!

  3. I love this so much. Who is this kid? He/she will become such a cool adult someday. So great!!!
