I'll Be Back

Every week I give my students ten spelling words and for homework they need to use each one in a sentence.

This week many of the words came from the new unit we began on fractions.

Here is what one student wrote:

"Numerator rhymes with Terminator."

I gave her a big check mark and a smiley face for that one.


  1. You should give any student a month of no homework if they come up with a true rhyme for the word "multiple"!

  2. A sentence assigned to include numerator
    The student said it rhymed with terminator
    A challenge was issued for multiple
    Which resulted in a dangling participle
    When the denominator was eaten by an alligator.

    Clean limericks are challenging >>smile<<

    Do I win the 'no homework for a month'?

  3. joseph, i think it's become abundantly clear that you have too much time on your hands.

    but your limerick received two very enthusiastic thumbs up.
