Student of the Hour: Daniel (First Grade)

One of my students in first grade made me smile a lot today when I was grading his work.
His name is Daniel, and he is going places.

To illustrate "wisdom," he crafted this sentence:
My mom has brilliant wisdom.

No one writes sentences like this.  Simon was a close second with "Solomon is wisdom king," but only Daniel uses perfect grammar, vocabulary, and punctuation 98% of the time.

He also made this masterpiece of writing for homework.
Daniel's words are in red.
With more than two words per picture and an exclamation point for each, you know he's heading for an A.


  1. He's a cutie!
    Also, the grammar freak in me can't help it...I think you meant "writes".

  2. Oh my gosh, I can't believe I let that slip slide!
    Thanks for catching it, Scout!

  3. how sweet! i just stumbled upon your blog & happy i did -you have a beautiful heart :) im looking forward to following along & reading more posts :)

    be blessed, girl!
