One of our favorite books this year is "Adventures of Little Bird" by Johnathan Hillstrand the Captain of the "Time Bandit" (Deadliest Catch). He wrote and illustrated this book about a parrot "Little Bird" who wants to be a pirate; however, everyone he meets discourages his dream. Fortunately, he was bound and determined to be one and his dream finally came true. We decided to make this book into our class pumpkin display for the front lobby for all to enjoy!
Students worked on painting the boat to get it "ship-shape" for our literacy pumpkin display.
Finally all the characters are ready and reporting for duty. It turned out great. Thanks to Captain Jonathan for such a wonderful children's book!

The day after the writing celebration, students were invited to write one more narrative piece. This writing was used as the end assessment piece for the Narrative Unit. This is Leland's piece and in it he writes about what led up to our writing celebration and the celebration itself. We really liked his piece and wanted to share it.
One Thursday, me and my class had a PARTY! for Writer's Workshop
because tomorrow is the LAST Small Moment story. The song was called
"Celebration Time Come On! It's Funke.
But, before the shabangalanga we put(ted) our writing out. I mean
the ones we were working on. It had letters, pictures, blurbs and title. The
one's that are good.
This is kind of (cindav) a How To but it's not in order.
First you set out your writing.
Second the party.
And third is the museum.
And the fun begin(s).
