My class

So since I’m going to have two kids in school all day long next year, I’ve decided to get my sub licence renewed so I can start subbing in the fall.  I’m super excited about it and can’t wait to get started.  In order for all of this to work, I needed to take a re-certification course.  For the past month I’ve been taking a course on creativity.  It’s been a ton of fun, very interesting, and if you know me at all, you’ll know it’s right up my alley.  It’s been a blast!  My last week is this week and our final project was to either write a lesson plan for one of the ideas we talked about in class or actually implement one.  Since I don’t really have a class so much as I have a couple kids, I decided to take on a creative writing project with Megan.  I took a picture book and pulled out five phrases from the book.  Megan’s instructions were to write a story, including the five phrases in the order that they appeared.  I was so tickled by her story that I thought I should get it written down.  🙂

So the book I used was There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell (but I didn’t tell her that because I figured it would have skewed her story).  Her phrases were…

  • live in the shell
  • fill up the pail
  • she didn’t tell
  • such a big hassle
  • built a sand castle

And here’s her story:

The Crab Family

          Once upon a time four crabs lived in a shell. It was on a beach. They all loved it there! Their favorite thing to do was build sand castles. All they did was fill up the pails they had and dump them over. The mom did not like that because there was bad stuff down there like worms and dirty sand. The kids didn’t know that the worms were their enemies. She didn’t tell them that because she wanted them to learn themselves. After a couple months, the mom had triplets. It was such a big hassle. There was only two parents and 5 kids! The older kids still had not noticed the bad things in the sand. Many years later one of the kids built a sand castle and there were bad things in it! She screamed and screamed. She told the mom who told her brother.  They both never built sand castles again.
