2. Write Something That’ll Make Readers Smile

A few months ago, I was in a 2nd grade classroom and had the following comical conversation with two of the boys:

Boy 1: “Say this 2 times fast: two”

Me: “two two”

Boy 1: <laughing hysterically >

Me: “Do you know what a tutu is?”

Boy 1: “Yeah, it’s the dress that dance girls wear.”

Me: “Yes. Ballerinas wear tutus.”

Boy 2:”And the dance boys wear skinny jeans!”

Boy 1: “Yeah, I’m wearing skinny jeans today just like those dance boys!”

Boy 2: “I’m wearing skinny jeans too! I could be a dance boy in these pants.”
