Hailey and Sheridan show off their versions of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast.  Students in 5th and 6th grade were challenged to make their writing more creative by using their ABC’s.  Students had to summarize a fairy-tale and then rewrite it in 26 sentences.  The first sentence had to begin with the letter “A”, the second with “B” and so on.  Students also created booklets, illustrated the stories and will soon read them to their buddies.
