Mrs. Colopy's Second Grade Class
Wright Elementary School
Fairborn, Ohio


Our class read three books by Rosemary Wells. The books were MossPillows A Voyage to the Bunny PlanetA Voyage to the Bunny Planet, and First Tomato A Voyage to the Bunny Planet.  In the stories each bunny is having a horrible day. To escape the day the bunnies have a daydream where the bunny visits the Bunny Planet.  At the Bunny Planet, the bunnies have the best day possible and they get to do exactly what they want to do. We created our own bunny characters, named them, and wrote about the bunnies day and voyage to the Bunny Planet.

The Amazing Thing

I saw this amazing thing at the store. I wanted it so bad. I wasn’t doing my chore at home, which’s why I don’t have any money. It scares me when I don’t have any money. This might be a good time to go to the Bunny Planet. The queen of the Bunny Planet’s name is Janet. I dream that the Bunny Planet is going to help me get the money. I need $2 to get to it. Janet told me to do my chores and I would get the $2. At home I did my chores around the house and I got the cool rollerblades. They are so cool and I love them.
