"While I was Diving in the Sea..."

The third graders performed in a music program in April titled, "A Sailor Went to Sea."  In the classroom we took that theme just a bit further and created a writing piece with the prompt, "While I was diving in the sea, I saw an octopus watching me.  When I swam closer I could see that he was scared, but it wasn't of me.  He wrapped his tentacles around my legs, and pointed to a deep, dark cave.  What do you think was in the cave?"  Students were to create a short story telling what was in that cave.  They were also asked to illustrate their story and then complete a cut-and-paste activity to display in the hall.  They did an awesome job using their writing skills and their imaginations!
