Diary of a Worm

from a cute kid's book I have in my classroom...

April 10
It rained all night and the ground was soaked. We spent the entire day on the sidewalk.
Hopscotch is a very dangerous game.

May 1
Grandpa taught us that good manners are very important. So today I said "good morning" to the first ant I saw.
There were 600 more of them in line.
I stood there all day.

May 28
Last night I went to the school dance. You put your head in. You put your head out. You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself about.
That's all we could do.

June 15
My older sister thinks she's so pretty. I told her no matter how much time she spends looking in the mirror, her face will always look just like her rear end.
Spider thought that was really funny.
Mom did not.

What would YOUR diary entry look like if YOU were a worm???

Lol! What a great sounding book!

I think my entry would be:

"I'm feeling a bit sluggish today."

that's so funny! i love it.

I would write:

"Dear Diary,
Today I made it all the way across the sidewalk AND back. I'm really starting to pick up speed."

Anne said...

I need to get this book...

"Dear Diary, dirt dirt dirt dirt dirt. Sand, mud, grime."

That's Andy's entry anyway. Apparently the worm was having an off day. Woke up on the wrong side of the sidewalk.

Wow! How old is this kid? I think he is brillant. Shaun laughed out loud at the looking like her rear end comment.
