To begin our unit, we discussed our ideas about what a story is. There were a lot of connections between stories and the books we read:
Amira: "We played frozen. We are the princesses so we wear the dresses"
Grace: "The boys had to try to save us because we were pretending that Nora had frozen our hearts!"
Nora: "And then they were trying to get away."
Aubrey: "Our ships can fly and sail on water."
Julian: "We are going to steal the girls off Nora! We're going to sneak up in our ship and take them when she's sleeping."
Aubrey: "Then Nora will chase us!"
Anri: "So we were hiding the treasure so they couldn't find it!"
Edward: "The pirates stole the treasure and we got it back!"
