Grade 1 will hear the story "A Turkey for Thanksgiving," and will create a drawing to represent the story. Grade 2 will make a drawing to represent the story "The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses."


Grade 3 will hear "The Ox Cart Man" and do an activity to show the sequence of the story. Grade 4 students will create bumper stickers. Grade 5 will write its own mini-story book. The class has been studying historical fiction, including Roald Dahl's books, for which Miriam Larson's class completed several projects.
