We're preparing for the state writing test (next week, AHHH!), and so my fifth graders are having to do a lot of writing based strictly off of prompts. They've missed being able to write about anything they want, and so I wanted to give them a chance to do a free write. They were supposed to write an essay about a page long, on any topic they wanted. As expected, I got papers of varying quality about families, vacations, school, and zombies*. And then I got this one, from my student who I describe as gifted, lazy, and very... unique:
Bunnys, bunnys, everywhere.
The smell of bunnys is in the air.
Bunnys cannot breathe in the sea.
Bunnys also have stinky pee.
Bunnys also eat a lot.
I caught a bunny in a pot.
Bunnys are as thin as keys.
That is why they eat peas.
Bunnies also are different.
Some of their legs are also bent.
Bunnys are really thin.
I can stick them to the wall with a pin.
Bunnys can be very sweet.
That is why we use them for meat.
Bunnys are everywhere.
But they also pee.
*Zombies and those annoying paper poppers are the current fads in my classroom.
