5th Grade - Books

I've been managing to get a lot of mileage out of my cup of sticks.  For this project, fifth graders pulled 3 sticks out of the cup with random words on them, and then were challenged to write a short story involving the random objects.  First, the stories were planned in their sketchbooks.  Then, the fifth graders wrote them out and illustrated them on small booklets that I had made for everyone.  This project makes me wish we had a few more weeks of school so we could finish these books up nice and tightly; as it stands now the books are mostly pencil, with only a few finishing in time to add some color to it.

Anyway, the result is a ton of very strange and extremely unique stories about evil pickles, possessed hula hoops, or skateboard superheroes.  Here are a few pages for a little peek.
