|Our first grade class read The Chocolate
Bunny by Maria Claret. Bertie Rabbit badly wants to help Poppa, but things
always seem to go wrong. Then he accidentally helps his father create a chocolate
rabbit! After hearing the naughty things Bertie Bunny did, and discussing the
definition of "naughty," we wrote our own stories about naughty bunnies.
We worked in cooperative groups to write and illustrate the stories.

My bunny is cute. My bunny
likes chocolate eggs and hops for eggs. My mom makes beads. The bunny is round and my
bunny is funny and it is playful. We like him and he likes carrots. The mom made carrots
and the bunny ate it. He got in trouble for eating all the carrots.
The Easter Bunny hid all the
eggs. And Bertie found all of them. He took all of the eggs. He opened the
eggs. The Easter Bunny felt bad.
Once upon a time a little
bunny was throwing eggs at his dad's carving. Because he was a bad little bunny the
dad sent him to bed. He ran away.
