Because we are going to be creating a story for the elementary children of Lake Street, we have listed possible topics to fit in with their character education program (below). We also brainstormed to see what kind of story we would like to create. So far, we have tossed up the idea of fairy tales, cartoon re-dos, the cat version of West Side Story, real life scenarios, etc. I can't wait to see what we come up with at the end of the semester!!
