Kids Say (or in this Case Rap) the Darndest Things
My sister was helping my six year old niece with her homework recently. This particular assignment required her to write a sentence using each of her eight spelling words. As usual, she breezed through the assignment. Before she got to the last word, my sister announced, "you've done a great job so far, only one more to go. The last word is under, can you think of a sentence with under?" Without hesitating, my niece started dancing, looked my sister in the eye and dramatically delivered, "it's like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder how I keep from going under." Grandmaster Flash would be proud.
