One of the many reasons I love teaching third graders is that they make me laugh daily.
The kids were given an assignment where they had to write a persuasive letter to the President pretending they were a turkey, and asking him to pardon them for Thanksgiving. I really encouraged the kids to be silly with it.
One boy, who did not quite get that the whole point was that you would not get cooked, wanted to warn the President that he would burn his mouth if he tried to eat him. But how he explained it in his letter was that he should be pardoned because he was "hot and a good dancer".
