I came across this great book quite by accident (don't you love it when that happens). It looked good enough to break my self-imposed Amazon probation and go ahead and purchase it. I'm a big fan of Jon Klassen who illustrates here. The story is basically personifying "The Dark". How it hides when light comes, etc. I think it's a very creative idea for a story!
So I asked my students to write from the perspective of "The Dark"--how does it feel, etc.
My favorite one: I will be scared of myself. :)
...sad because who would play with me.
...sad because everyone would be afraid of me.
I would make people go to sleep and a nap.
I will go to someone's room when the lights are off.
...feel sad because everyone is afraid of me and no one would play with me.
I would wonder what it would feel to be in the sun all day.:)
It is just boring because every day I am trapped in a door behind it
I would feel good because the boy likes me (from the story).
I will feel lonely because I don't have any friends, only 1 star.
