Feature Friday

Over the course of this school year Mackaylan has developed an intense love of writing.  She has multiple writing journals that she writes in, but one in particular is her very favorite and she writes in it almost everyday.  If I must say, I think she is very creative and has a strong command of voice and word choice for a rising first grader! In an effort to encourage her to continue to write daily (especially throughout the summer) I thought we would feature one of her stories each Friday for you to read and enjoy.  So, without further ado we proudly present…..

The Princess by Mackaylan

Once there was a princess.  But what do you know?  It’s me.  I’m the princess. I’ve known it since I was a baby.  You can tell when I wear my crown.  I also have dazzling dresses that I wear to church.  I’m a princess even though I go to school.  I have a baby sister that’s going to be a princess.  When I am grown-up I am going to be a queen.  I live in a kingdom.  It is fun living in a big kingdom like this one.  Princesses like me eat crumpets.  I live a palace.  A palace is the same thing as a castle.  If you want to be a princess you have to be polite. You have to use your manners.  I am a good princess. I love being a princess!
