Children have active imaginations. They tell stories regularly about the things their stuffed animals do, but do we ever write them down? Provide your students with a cow named Vic la Vache - I use a stuffed cow, but a paper cow would work just as well. Ask the kids to write down on this Vic La Vache Story Sheet where Vice la Vache the world traveling cow has gone. Encourage students to be as creative as possible. I have read stories about Vic playing for the NBA, going into outer space, taking long trips to Mexico and even exploring the sewers. What will your students come up with? Find out by downloading this sheet from my blog - Raki's Rad Resources.
