My wife used to be a reading teacher for 1st and 2nd graders in Hawaii.
She would tell me all sorts of stories, and this one is one of my favorites.
The assignment was to make a sentence out of a word, i.e. if the word was ‘tree’, a kid would maybe say ‘that tree is tall.’
The word for that day was ‘across.’
One of her students wrote “Jesus died on a cross.”
It tickled Rahel so much that she gave the girl a passing grade for the assignment.
