Whole School Literacy SOL#6 2015

Do you ever do a whole school literacy project? A few years ago I started a story based on the story “Snowmen at Night.” It was called Snowmen at McCord School at Night. Each class added to the story and it was hilarious. Since that time we have done quite of few whole school stories. The principal loves to read them at a morning assembly and the kids love hearing what they have written added to all the kids.
This year we started one to end our reading challenge and for Mr. Principal to read on our reward day. This is the first part of the story our class came up with. I can hardly wait to hear the middle and end!


Mrs. T. Klinger’s second grade class was so excited! The day they had been waiting for had finally arrived. Today was the day of the big SEA adventure Mrs. Henley had promised them. They had read all the books, tracked all the points, and now were ready for the big day.
There seemed to be just one slight problem, someone or something had snuck into their room and taken all their tickets.
The second graders became worried, but instead of pouting like the Pout Pout Fish, they began to scour their room and the school for clues. They searched all the backpacks, looked in every desk in their room, and rummaged through every book bin, but their tickets were nowhere to found.
“What are we going to do?” Wailed Jayce. “I have read all those books for nothing.”
Suddenly the second graders heard a commotion coming from somewhere in the hallway. They quickly scurried out to see what it was.

  1. This is such a good idea! I love the idea that the whole school is involved in writing a story piece by piece.

  5. Love this idea of the whole school adding to a story! The beginning you shared is terrific...you can see how invested the children are in this whole school storytelling. Marvelous that your principal reads them aloud!!!
