The Grade 5 students began the year reading about myths. I’ve observed how students from all over the world would be fascinated with myths. They’re even more excited to write their own!
After reading several myths and watching videos, they were very eager to start writing one. Some chose to write about the beginning of a natural phenomenon, while others wrote about clashes among gods and goddesses. Most importantly, they incorporated morals. Of course, no writing would complete without having it published. We ended the activity with having each student read his/her own myth aloud for the class to enjoy.
Here’s a sample student work which was also featured in the school’s newsletter to parents. Happy reading!
