2010-2011 SECOND GRADE KNIGHT WRITER
Nottingham Knights in the second grade have been discussing creative ideas and thinking hard. The result is a magazine full of original stories describing real and imagined adventures. Check out the creative writing in the 2010-2011 Second Grade Nottingham Knight Writer! Ms. Langford’s Leap Frogs will make you laugh with their amazing journeys of favorite stuffed animals, inspired by The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.
Ms. DeAtley’s Dynamos will delight you with intriguing spin offs of The Nutcracker and stories about a magical snow globe.
Mr. Flood’s Falcons wrote fabulous stories about haunted houses, naughty puppies, dinosaurs, and visiting the beach.
Mr. Katoen’s Tigers wrote terrific narratives from personal experiences and spine-tingling adventure stories.
And Ms. Schaefer’s Scholars used sensational descriptive language in stories about personal experiences, imagined villains, panda bears, singing chickens, and angry foxes.
Each second grader chose one favorite piece from his or her writing notebook, polished it for the Knight Writer by conferencing with peers and teachers to contribute to the 2010-2011 Second Grade Knight Writer. The Knight Writer is the product of Nottingham’s Exemplary Project, supported by Arlington County Public Schools and the Nottingham PTA.
