Stella Queen of the Snow

We read Stella Queen of the Snow by Marie Louise-Gay.  After hearing the story, we discussed and brainstormed activities on the board that you might do if you were queen or king for the day. Afterwards, we took those ideas and turned them into our own short stories with illustrations created with Kid Pix. We plan on having a dress up day where we dress as queens and kings and read our stories aloud in the library.
If I Kelsey were Queen for the day, I would rule the world. I would make everyone do anything I say. I would like to be queen for the day because I can do whatever I want. And I do not have to listen to my parents. I would like to be a beautiful queen.
If I Nicky were King for the day, I would wear a crown. I would buy myself whatever I wanted. I would buy everything in the world. I would live in a castle. I would sit on a throne. It would be nice to be king for the day.
