Sahara Special Writing Challenge

We have almost come to the end of our third shared novel “Sahara Special.” Apart from the fact that the chapters are REALLLLLY long, we have been loving this novel.

The story is set in a Grade Five class which has a very interesting teacher, Miss Pointy.  Chapter Twelve is called “Name calling” and the students are invited to share the story of how they got their names.  The main character shares what she wrote in her journal and the way she tells the story if her name is breathtaking.

I wonder if you would like to write the story of your name?  Many students seemed to know a little bit about where their name came from but perhaps it would be necessary to have a chat at home and go deeper into the reason, inspiration or story behind how your parents decided upon the name you carry every day.

Will your writing be sticker worthy?
