I Wish I Had Duck Feet Writing

When we did our Dr. Seuss unit, I went to the bookstore to look for some titles that the kiddos may not be as familiar with. I hadn't even ever heard of this one, but I thought it looked interesting. The boy in the story is talking about how wonderful it would be to have certain animal attributes because you could do things better. I asked the students to write about what animal characteristic they'd like to have, and the most important part--why?

Horse legs to run fast or go slow.

Butterfly wings to fly over traffic--now that would be cool!

long legs of a cheetah so I can run faster than a car.

How creative! :) Flamingo feet because I can stand on one foot.

8 legs-not fun for shoe shopping, but there have to be some advantages to that!

legs of a cheetah because they run fast.

My favorite one! Wouldn't it be advantageous to have a long neck?
