  • Creative Writing: Bloodied Snow Of The Fallen

    wrong. The cold October night was a beautiful sight to see, stars peppered the sky as the moon’s light bathed the forest. I felt a cold shiver go through my body as I slumped against a tree, holding my abdomen in pain, wondering if this was it, if my life was finally over...sadly...I almost wished it was. That was the last thing I remembered of that night before waking up in a partisan camp, in a cot inside a tent. The first face to greet me was him, Ben, he’d…

  • Camp Widjiwagan Essay

    dreams like I did, at Camp Widjiwagan, this summer. It was one week of a Harry Potter themed, outdoors day camp.

  • Ashville: A Narrative Fiction

    window, I could see my own transparent reflection. To the glass, I was just a ghost with a rainy face, though it showed me all that I was. Coal eyes, cotton hair, and snowy skin. My eyes had always reminded me of my mother, and where she came from. I could imagine beautiful women with long dark hair and sun kissed skin, the smell of warm, freshly baked bread, and weaving poinsettias through one's hair. I wished to be more like that. Instead I more resembled my father. I could hardly…

  • Where The Wild Things Are Analysis

    Elizabeth Ross is the owner of a dance company in Birmingham called DANCEe. Last year, she choreographed a performance based on the storybook Where The Wild Things Are. This performance was a combination of contemporary “modern” dance and hip-hop. Both of these styles are very misunderstood, and many people do not consider them as actual dance.

  • The Importance Of The Book Can Change A Person's Life

    an early age and our ability grows as we get older. I, for one, took enjoyment in learning how to do these things. When I was a child, of course the picture books were the best. I mean, at that age, I didn’t really have the visualization skills to see the book on my own just from words, versus how I am today. So, I loved having the pictures in books as a visual aid. I was reading things like “Beauty & the Beast, The Jungle Book, Tarzan, Cinderella, and The Lion King.” I can’t say how many times…

  • The Literary Elements In Where The Wild Thigs Are

    The literary elements in Where the Wild Thigs Are, work together in harmony through the use of vivid illustrations.

Though most of the story takes place in this wild land, I feel it is important to address the story begins and ends with Max being in his room. As a child my room was “my space”, my room was a place where I was the boss. Max’s room was…

  • Wild Things Are

    Where the Wild Things Are Listening I would read the students the story Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak as a read aloud during a whole group setting. I would then allow the students to create their own “wild thing” by using miscellaneous items, such as paper plates; construction paper; markers; crayons; glue; scissors; magazines; toilet/paper towel rolls, etc. I would also put the book in the listening literacy center where students would be able to listen to the story using type…

  • The Wild Lamassu

    Where The Wild Lamassu Are I chose this particular limestone masterpiece made in Iraq in 750 BCE, for the Assyrian palace, because I felt a personal connection with the Lamassu. Growing up, my family had many statues such as the large and beautiful four seasons around the yard that tower over a human, mythical creatures hidden in the gardens and trolls from Norway hidden around the house spontaneously scaring guests. Also, as a child my favorite book was Where the Wild Things Are, The Lamassu…
