kktv.com A little boy is in trouble for a picture he drew as part of a school assignment. Second grader Kody Smith was assigned to go outside, look at theclouds, and then use his imagination to draw what he saw. "Draw a picture of what you see in the clouds from your imagination and that picture is a gun,” explained 8-year-old Kody. Because it was a gun, the teacher at Talbott Elementary in Widefield called him into the office, and then filed a behavior report. His parents say that's too much. “It hurts. It hurts that he was so scared for being penalized for his imagination,” said Kody’s father, Jeff Smith. “He’s 8 years old. He was doing exactly what he was told to do for the assignment,” said Kody’s mother, Angel Rivers. The report says Kody showed behavior that is disruptive to the entire learningcommunity.
