Happy Monday! I am excited to begin another week of remote learning with you. We will learn more about Australia in social studies. We will focus on chickens in science. You will also continue working on your timeline project in Ms. Newberry's computer class. Let's start the week by having the opposite of a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day!
Question of the Day: What do you think this object is? Comment below!
Now that we have read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day together, it is your turn to write a story!
Use the writing templates from your teacher to describe your own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
- Cut the writing papers in half and then staple them together at the top to make a flip-up book.
- Your name will be in the title of the book instead of Alexander’s name.
- In the book by Judith Viorst, Alexander decides he’d rather be in Australia on his terrible day. Think of someplace else far away for your story.
- Be generous with your words as you write.
- Try to put more than one idea on each page.
- Do not use ideas that were in the book.
- You may write about things that actually happened to you, things you make up, or a combination of both.
- Write neatly.
- Add illustrations after you complete the writing. Be careful, colorful, and detailed.
You will have three days to write and illustrate your terrible story!
Other Activities for the Day
- Tell someone a joke. Here's a funny one!

A: Because it saw the ocean's bottom!
