How the Cat got its Bell

This week, Dawna had to write a play for her writer's workshop assignment.  Her play is based on a story we read together called "The Meeting of the Mice."  When we read it, she told me that she liked the beginning, but didn't like the end.  So, I told her that she could base her play on the story and give it an ending that she liked.  I think she did great.  It was a new experience for her writing with only dialogue, but she still managed to get a story out.  It has a beginning, middle, and end... and it includes a problem and a solution.  Check.  Meets first grade standards :)

Enjoy our play: How the Cat got it's Bell.  (not sure if you can understand every word, but I think the gist of it comes through ok)

It's weird that your kid is so big. And great work, Dawna!

Grandma and Grandpa Koberstein and Uncle Lynn enjoyed your great show, "How the Cat got its Bell". Excellent acting and video.

With all our Love

Wow, there is a huge difference between a 4 year old Dawna and a 6 year old Dawna - I thought she was big last time. I am so impressed by all the girls reading and more impressed that she could write that. Way to go Dawna!
