A magic key to open the sea.
A thief who became my friend.
Catching a fish that’ll grant you a wish
These enchanting concepts come from the writing of the wonderfully creative class 2C in Cardenal Newman, Buenos Aires.
During November Station Teaching, the class created oral narratives using Rory`s Story Cubes.
The boys loved it, imagining spectacular stories with stunning storylines.
Despite being so young, they really grasped narrative structure, including settings, problems and resolutions in all their tales.
Even more impressive is that all stories are in English and not their native Spanish.
At the last station, they were dying to write their stories down, reaching for scraps of paper while borrowing pencils to scribble down their ideas.
Their stories are so good, we`ve decided to put them in a book and donate it to the school library so other Newman boys can enjoy the adventures.
Tomorrow, the last day of school before the summer holidays, we celebrate the Book Launch.
It’s a wonderful achievement to publish your own book, especially when you are only 7 years old. Well done!
