We did a little creative writing with this story as well.
I wanted to have a way for the students to experience how the girl in the story must have felt when she tried to draw. I gave the students a step by step drawing activity. Some of the students told me it was hard, but I encouraged them not to give up like the girl in the story. All of them finished and all of them were GREAT!!Here is how a few turned out.
