Funny Story Friday

I place literacy time on a pedastool in my classroom. We spent more than half the day reading and writing. I loved that part of the day. But, my favorite part of it was writing. The students would plan, write, proofread and revise their stories. After they felt the story was the best, I would publish the story by typing it, folding the papers, and completing with a cardstock cover. The students then illustrated their book they they wrote all by themselves. They took such ownership in their work.

I'm including one of my favorite stories that was written this year. It's not for the weak of heart.

I realize this might have been a traumatizing even in this child's life, but they ways she told the story just makes me laugh. Perhaps that's not nice. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Maybe one day it will be available in stores.

Haha! That's hilarious! I still have a book I made in elementary school, so know that whoever wrote that may keep it... :)
