A week ago, I visited three second grade classrooms (including Mighty Mite’s) to talk about being an author and writing with descriptive words. According to the thank-you notes I received, I think they had almost as much fun as I did:
I like your mini computer a lot!
I think it’s cool you wrote a chapter book!
Thank you for teaching us how to be a real world author.
and my favorite(s)…
I learned to use new words.
I rushed home and started writing.
I promised the second graders that if they wrote me a word picture of their favorite stuffed animal or pet, using their five senses and descriptive words, I would post it on my blog.
People, you are in for a serious treat. These story gems are tears-running-down-face funny and some are borderline poetry. Check out the tabs above for the talent in Mrs. Burman, Mrs. Shears, Mrs. Caldwell’s classrooms. And thank you to the students, teachers, and parents for allowing me to share their work!
Good job, kids!*
