For this writing assignment, Mr. Stick Gets a Wish. I didn’t give the kids too many parameters, because I was curious as to what kinds of wishes Mr. Stick would get, and how he would come about them. Mr. Stick was visited by a fairy godmother, a tooth fairy, and even a dark, shadowy force! He wished to be a famous par cour(er) and lots of money.
Yes, the picture to the left has quite a few spelling mistakes, but I’m not grading on spelling, punctuation, or even grammar – as long as the concept can be conveyed, and I can read it. Remember, I have some VERY reluctant writers in my class! The idea is to get them to enjoy writing. The proper stuff will come with time.
