Rose's Story...

Here's a story Rose wrote all by herself for English... I wish it was easier to read, but I'll write it down below for those of you who would like to know what she wrote without straining your eyes!!!

"The Squirrel and His Nuts"
"The big, fat grey squirrel was preparing for winter. He gathered some nuts that were laying under (the) trees. He looked for a place to hide them. In the attic the squirrel found an old sock with a big hole. He stuffed the nuts into the sock and dragged it to his hollow. When winter came the squirrel (went) to the hollow where he had hidden the nuts. But he couldn't find the nuts! What had happened to his nuts? They had fallen through the big hole in the sock."

For Rose this was a major accomplishment, since English is not her first language, and she still struggles with sentence structure and all... She didn't think that she could do it by herself, but I know it makes her feel good to know that she can!!!

Rose had a picture to write the story about, but I did have to tell her a lot about the squirrel before she could write the story! There's so much that we just take for granted...
