During the month of December, students in the Writing Club focused on writing stories about new beginnings.

During the month of November, students in writing club were able to write a story in response to one of three prompts:

  • Today is Thanksgiving Day. Describe what you think it may have been like at the first Thanksgiving for the Native Americans and Pilgrims.
  • Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey, not the bald eagle, to be our country’s symbol. If you had the opportunity to help decide on our nation’s symbol, would you choose the turkey or bald eagle? Or would you choose a different animal all together? Explain your answer.
  • Write a story with the theme of patriotism.

Below are the results of their work.  Enjoy!
