You Should Let Me Love You

I asked the students in my 4th grade to each select random parts of speech and we would use the words to create one sentence.

Verbs: Achieve, dream, believe, know, hate, love, sexify, dance, pray, eat

Adjectives: Beautiful, ugly, stupid, glamorous, annoying, nutty, tough, hurt


Then I asked them to break off into small groups and present their sentences accordingly. Three stuck out to me. But, only one impacted me.

love like you've never been hurt
