This week, as part of ELA class, I've been reading aloud a story each day and having the kids complete a small literary element chart. Characters, Setting, Problem, Solution, and Summary.
Today, I read them MY story from last year -- The Million Dollar Test (which can be found here).
I needed another story, AND I figured it wasn't too early for them to hear a story about the importance of showing their work on tests.
They really enjoyed it! In fact, my afternoon class was asking for copies of it, and asking if I could write another story!
I'm thinking maybe I could charge a buck a copy and pay off my mortgage!
