Last week we read a book called Stephanie`s Ponytail by Robert Munsch . This week we did our Story Elements activity on an iPad. We typed in what we thought about the book. The Story Elements are the book title ,setting, characters, problem, and solution. Then we printed it out. After we printed it out, we cut the Story Elements boxes. Then we pasted them on a huge piece of construction paper. After that, we made Stephanie. We put her feelings, actions, and thoughts on her to describe her. Then, we cut her out with a think bubble. We pasted her on the same piece of construction paper. Then we pasted the thought bubble next to Stephanie.
Now I will tell you about the book. Stephanie went to her mom one day and told her mom that nobody in her class had a ponytail and that she wanted a ponytail coming right out the back. So Stephanie`s mom gave her a ponytail coming right out the back. When Stephanie went to school the other kids said her ponytail was ugly. But Stephanie said that it was her ponytail and she liked it. When Stephanie went to school all the girls had a ponytail coming out the back, just like Stephanie. But Stephanie was NOT happy about it. So she said that they were copycats. The next morning , Stephanie`s mom asked if Stephanie wanted a ponytail coming out the back. Stephanie said no. Her mom said that there were no other places to put ponytails. But Stephanie said that there is another place to put ponytails and that was right out the side, just above her ear. Her mom said that it was strange but she did it anyway. When she went to school the other kids said her ponytail was ugly. The next day when Stephanie went to school all the girls and even some of the boys had ponytails coming out just above their ears. The next morning Stephanie`s mom said” Stephanie, would you like a ponytail coming out the back?” Stephanie said” No, but I want one coming out of the top of my head like a tree.” So her mom gave her a ponytail coming out the top of her head. When she went to school the other kids said that her ponytail was ugly. But the next day, all the girls and all the boys had ponytails coming out the top of their heads. The next day Stephanie told her mom that she wanted a ponytail coming out in front of her nose. When she was walking to school she ran into 4 cars, 3 trees, 2 houses, and the principal. When she finally got to school, all the other kids said that her ponytail was ugly. The next day all the boys and all the girls and even the principal had ponytails coming out in front of their noses. Stephanie yelled at them and said that she would…SHAVE HER HEAD! The next morning everybody shaved their heads except Stephanie had…a ponytail coming out the back.
