TAC celebrate Paul Bunyan

Over MEA the TAC room spent a day learning about Paul Bunyan.  They read stories, created “mad libs” about how Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox met, colored pictures, and watched a movie. What a fun day! Please see our facebook page for more photos.

In small groups, the kids wrote “mad libs” and then each group read theirs to the class.

How Paul Bunyan Met Babe

By: Sam S, Daniel, Landon, Sean, Ava and Chloe

It seems an amazing baby was once born in the state of Kentucky When he was only two weeks old, he weighed more than 367 pounds, and for breakfast every morning he ate pizza, watermelon, and strawberries!  But the strangest feature was his big, curly black beard. It was so big and bushy that every morning his poor mother had to comb it with a skyscraper.

The years went by and Paul grew up. He grew so large he had to live in a mansion. When he was 576 years old, he experienced some wild weather. He noticed some snow blowing around, which was natural enough. What was unnatural was that the snow was red.

“Why, that’s beautiful!!” Paul said. Grinning from nose to mouth he set out across the pink  hills. The snow fell until the woods were covered with a thick blanket of purple .

As Paul walked over the huge drifts, bitter winds whistled through the trees and thunder rolled in the sky. But he soon began to hear another sounds in the wind—“Roar.”

“Who’s there?” Paul called.

Bark.”

“Where are you, baby?” Suddenly Paul saw a claws sticking right up out of a green snowdrift.  When he pulled on the tail out came the biggest baby coyote on earth! Except for its blue horns, the creature was frozen deep yellow.  Paul helped the giant babe warm up. Babe nuzzled Paul with his wet nose. Paul was so happy that his joyous laughter shook Pluto! He had found a friend. And that was how Paul Bunyan met Babe the orange hippo!!

It seems an amazing baby was once born in the state of Texas When he was only two weeks old, he weighed more than 9 tons, and for breakfast every morning he ate steak, candy, and cooked carrots!  But the strangest feature was his big, curly black beard. It was so big and bushy that every morning his poor mother had to comb it with a boulder.

The years went by and Paul grew up. He grew so large he had to live in a castle. When he was 63 years old, he experienced some wild weather. He noticed some snow blowing around, which was natural enough. What was unnatural was that the snow was green.

“Why, that’s beautiful!!” Paul said. Grinning from eyes to mouth he set out across the white  hills. The snow fell until the woods were covered with a thick blanket of blue.

As Paul walked over the huge drifts, bitter winds whistled through the trees and thunder rolled in the sky. But he soon began to hear another sounds in the wind—“hee haw.”

“Who’s there?” Paul called.

Roar”.

“Where are you, baby?” Suddenly Paul saw a tail sticking right up out of a red snowdrift.  When he pulled on the antler out came the biggest baby hamster on earth! Except for its magenta horns, the creature was frozen deep violet.  Paul helped the giant babe warm up. Babe nuzzled Paul with his wet nose. Paul was so happy that his joyous laughter shook Jupiter! He had found a friend. And that was how Paul Bunyan met Babe the yellow horse!!
