Guest Turtle


Q-ster's second grade class takes turns bringing home Franklin the Turtle, reading books about Franklin, and then writing in the class journal.  When it was his turn, he decided that Franklin should take take this chance to do some writing too (see?  He got the turtle to hold a pencil!)

I was quite bemused about some of the things he wrote ("Did Franklin really faint when you told him about how your piano lesson went?"), but he pointed out that they are allowed to write fiction or non-fiction - whatever they choose. Exaggerations are highly encouraged in their composition book.

Good imagination. Signs of a future writer.

Love that exaggeration is welcome!
