Ok, Ok... not THAT kind of fantasy! Y'all I went through a bajillion Ryan Gosling memes looking for just the right one. My favorite one said "Hey girl... I would love to spend New Year's Eve writing your students' names on popsicle sticks" LOL! but I didn't like the picture, so this one will have to suffice. The truth is... I'm too OCD to let anyone else write anything for me!
Speaking of.. we made a fantasy anchor chart this week. We've been focusing on fantasy texts and writing this week. SO much fun for my super creative kids! My kids helped me to come up with the pictures- we thought about texts that we have read over the year that definitely could NOT happen. We had recently read "The Fisherman and His Wife" hence the funny looking "magic" fish (this is what my kids think a magic fish should look like- top hat and all!)
To begin this week, we read "If the Dinosaurs came back" by Bernard Most
We took some ideas from the book and put them into an organizer..
And did a little writing...
"Dinosaurs could eat the grass. You would not have to use a lawn mower, they could eat the grass."
I'm excited to have my kids write their own fantasy stories next week!
