 - Do you love writing crazy stories? 4th grade does! - 

4th grade has been reading the realistic fiction book Frindle by Andrew Clements.  In this book, 5th grader Nick Allen decides to change the name of a very important writing tool, the pen, to the made-up word known as the Frindle. You wouldn't believe the amount of chaos this causes in Nick's school! 

During the 4th graders' library time, the students had the opportunity to create their own stories using a free website that is similar to Mad Libs. Using the amazing website Wacky Web Tales and an iPad, the students used the parts of speech to create their own stories. The students not only had a blast creating these hilarious stories, they also had practice with grammar and tricky parts of speech. Check out a few of their creations!
