Not feelin the homework

Often times blogs are filled with their kids great achievements, huge spelling lists and impressive projects. But what about those days that the kid doesn't want to do anything. Ryan came home with the assignment to write a sentence for each spelling word. Once he finally sat down it took him at least an hour to come up with these sentences. Don't tell Ry but I think they are pretty funny. Yes, he has picked all easy words. That is a different issue though. I tried to slide through 4th too..in fact I was still trying this stuff my Sophomore year at the Y.
1. A writer writes.
2. An inventor invents.
3. A treasurer treasures.
4. A pitcher pitches.
5. An editor edits.
6. A listener listens.
7. An actor acts.
8. An auditor audits.
9. A senator senits.
Yes, we made him write better ones. Don't you wish you were Ry's teacher. He can be such an easy kid sometimes.

I would say most days around here one of the kids does not want to do . . . homework, piano, chores. I don't think it gets better ever!

OK, I am totally laughing out loud at this one. He is pretty clever. And kinda sneaky. I mean, they ARE complete sentences, right?

I don't get it. What's wrong with these sentences? They seem perfect to me.Ü
