Reading the comments on that post about @ElmwoodFranklin 2nd graders editing NFL players’ tweets:

The tweet above is from the Elmwood Franklin School in Buffalo, New York. (@ElmwoodFranklin) The tweet links to their Facebook post pasted below:

Second graders are serious fans of football—and grammar! Elmwood Franklin School’s second grade students applied their lessons in proper sentence structure, noun and verb usage, spelling, and punctuation to correct the tweets of professional football players. The students partnered in groups and together found several mistakes in these tweets, including the incorrect spelling of “a lot.”

I shared this story with my community at The School at Columbia University over the weekend. A teacher was chatting with me about it just now, which prompted me to actually read the comments. Yikes.
