Guest Posters: The Wild and Precious Things

As part of the computer class, the kids had to learn how to use their school email. The computer teacher had them send me emails. Friday, I came back from my conference to find 20 emails. And they.are.hilarious.

A little back story:
Friday was a c.r.a.z.y day. We had a math test and a reward movie on the agenda. When we have a reward movie, I don't tell them what it is ahead of time, mostly so they won't spend the day whining about it if they don't like it. We were watching it at 11, so I told them that we'd talk about it at 11, but I'd choose the movie while they were in computer. So, most of them took the opportunity to badger me about the movie through email.

Apparently, the computer teacher also taught them about changing fonts, changing font colors, and changing background colors. I hope I can get it to transfer onto the blog.

And I did not change the spelling in any way. Which is kind of obvious.

For your enjoyment:
Dear Mrs. O,

Dear Miss O,

And this guy? He keeps it simple:
This next one requires some translation:
 you are the best teacher in the world. and the nices teacher ive ever had and will have. hofely it gets threw the sictem
The last line says "Hopefully it gets through the system."
We've got some work to do, he and I.

I didn't edit this one. They didn't finish my last name or sign their own. But they attempted the turquoise and tangerine, which gets them bonus points in my book. 
 Hi Ms. Owen,

From your student,
Dear Miss O,

**We had some issues prior to Computer class:
Dear,Miss O
I'm loving the first 6 weeks well no I'm no because J said"just give my money" and I think that was kind of mean because he just keeped on saying It so now I'm going to not evan say anything because he was trying to pick on me.So I think you should tell him when he says something he should keep his promess.


This one always has an angle...
 Dear mrs. O
