Wednesday's Window... School Visit

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to visit my son Tyler's school for about an hour or so.  I got to see him amongst all his friends and see a brief snippet about what goes on in his day. So far I have been thoroughly impressed with Tyler's teacher Mrs. Boncich, and she has been impressed with Tyler's ability to learn.  He really is a smart little boy, he must take after his mother.  I like going to these events because it not only lets me see Tyler in his classroom it lets me see projects that the kids have been working on, I have to say it's funny reading what these kids can come up with.  Hanging in the back of the room was an assignment that asked the kids to write a descriptive sentence and illustrate it. Pretty interesting stuff.  I hope you enjoy this weeks Wednesday's Window.

This is my son Tyler
It made sense to him, makes no sense to me
I hope I don't run into that monster at the mall
What the hell does it mean
Again with the monsters at the mall
It must have been something they ate
I'm glad the farmer could get away
How the baby got to the moon I don't know
It's always funny seeing what these kids can come up with.  You just never know what they are going to say.

John Willey - Daddy's in Charge?



  1. Awesome. There are a whole batch of parents that do nothing but drop their kids off in front of the school, then pick them up in the same way at the end of the day without ever getting involved. Wish more parents got involved like this.

    I also look forward to the film version of the hairy mall monster's bad day. I think Scorsese will be directing that one.

  2. It would be good to see more dads volunteering in the class. That assignment produced some interesting and amusing results.

  3. Those children are clearly geniuses.

  4. lovely! I am a sucker for bright illustrations with writing. So imaginative!
