After reading Le Morte de Arthur, I asked the kids in Literature Club to write a story based on one of the themes from the book or to rewrite a scene. Either way, the fun part of the project was to use modern day characters that most of us would recognize as the main characters of the new version.
Tanna used characters from Dr. Who and James used the theme revenge that dominates Le Morte de Arthur and wrote an original tale using the characters from Finding Nemo. Every story read last night was unique, creative and made me smile.
I posted Ella’s song above to show you what I mean by rewriting Le Morte de Arthur, using a modern forum. I also want her mom to hear it since she couldn’t be with us last night because she had surgery earlier in the day.
