1. Josh’s first poem:
A cat is in my hat.
The cat took my hat.
I got a bat and then I got my hat.
2. Josh’s first short story:
A cat was napping under a table. A dog yelled at the cat. The black cat ran. Wendy ran after Jake. Jake hid under a tree. Wendy asked Robin where is Jake? Robin said I don’t know where Jake went. After Jake climbed down the tree, Jake went in a tent and slept in the tent all day. Wendy found Jake in the tent. Wendy slept in the tent, too.
The requirements I gave him: use at least two proper nouns, use adjectives, have a problem and a solution. I use naps as my solution, too. He’s currently reading a bunch of age appropriate Star Wars books and Where the Sidewalk Ends. He’s also a big fan of Frog and Toad and Owl.
