2nd grade homework

I have such a hard time helping Isaac with his homework. He has to make sentences out of "core words" and sometimes the sentences have to have a specific number of words. Let's see how you do:

Use the following words in a sentence:

other some which

their there were

these some would

It took me forever to help him find a satisfactory sentence for each. Let's see what you come up with.

2nd grade homework can be so hard sometimes and I have a degree in elementary education! Just imagine what it will be like as they get older. Lets see what I can do with these sentences:
I have some other snacks, which you can choose from.
Were you over there with their dog?
Would you like some of these cookies?

I came up with: "These people would like some chocolate milk." (I had first said "these guys" but Isaac corrected me.)
"Julie said which other color she likes." (That's horrible syntax!!)
"Their cats were eating over there in the kitchen." (Isaac had to add the descriptive phrase "in the kitchen" because his teacher wants them to be descriptive.

Your sentences are way better.

"There were these other people, some of which would do their work."

Because I'm lazy.

I guess it would depend on whether you have to keep the words in order. Keeping them in order makes it way tougher. Here are mine...

The other kid shared some peanuts, which were pretty tasty.

Their skateboards were left over there.

These Skittles would be great with some Sprite!
