“My classmates laughed at me when I told them the title of my story…” Sofie told me eagerly . “They said it was so funny, I also made them laugh with my Kangaroo ears!”
Last week, my five-year-old daughter brought home a toy from her K1 class. Her assignment was to create a story involving Kangaroo Jane (the stuffed animal’s name), and show it to the class the following day. She made up her story on her own and here’s how her story goes…
This is the story of Kangaroo Jane and the big watermelon.
One day Kangaroo Jane told her mommy that she’s hungry.
And so, her mother cooked nice food for her.
But Kangaroo Jane didn’t want to eat.
She wants a watermelon instead.
“But Jane, you need to eat what’s on the table” “That is all we have!” said Kangaroo Jane’s mommy.
Kangaroo Jane followed her mom, and her mother felt so happy because Jane is an obedient Kangaroo.
Jane felt happy too!
That night, Jane’s dad went home for dinner.
And do you know what her daddy brought her?
The biggest watermelon a baby Kangaroo ever saw!
She was so happy that night.
She said to herself,”…they gave me watermelon because I followed mom. I am a good kangaroo!”
And Kangaroo Jane slept with a smile on her face.
And then, she sleep happily ever after. The End.
