When I was in elementary school I enjoyed writing and had a vivid imagination. One of the things I enjoyed doing was to walk to the lake and watch the seagulls and ducks. They seemed so peaceful floating on top of the water. Without warning, they would take off and fly.
I would draw pictures and write stories about where I would go and what I would do if I was a bird, or one of the ducks. I liked the idea of floating all day on Lake Ontario and basking in the sun with the cool breeze. If I could have flown, I probably would have visited Canada each day to see Niagara Falls. My two little legs couldn't take me far but my imagination could take me out of this country and world.
This page is a way for me to connect with students, share my passion to write, and hopefully instill this same passion in them as they learn at home.

When you write, remember to answer these questions:
I gave you a few examples to get you started.
1) Who you are with?
(mom, dad, brother, sister.)
2) Where you are?
(inside, outside, house, barn)
3) How are you feeling?
(happy, sad, mad, discouraged)
4)What are you doing?

5) When did this take place?
