The history lesson was about castles today, and the assignment was to write a story that takes place in a castle. Noah's was funny and full of action and sieges, and ended up with the king dead from a nuclear bomb. Here's Sarah's:
There once was a princess who lived in a castle. And her father was rich. He gave her everything a girl could want. But she said, "I do not want it. All I want is a friend."
So he searched all around through skies and land.
But he could not find a friend to take his daughter's hand.
When he got home she cried. Then she spoke.
She said, "It was a dream" and he awoke.
When he awoke she was sad, very sad.
But he said, "I have something that will make you glad."
So he wrote and he wrote for a very long time,
taking care of each word and care of each rhyme.
He played her a song and he said,
"Make some words and sing along."
So she sang and sang and twirled through the air.
They went out to lunch and met some friends there.
Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, and Snow White.
That's the end of my story, sunny and bright.
