Young Writers: Chalk
Editors note: The Citizen Telegram is teaming with Highland Elementary School to publish and recognize a selected writing sample from one student each month of the 2015-16 school year. This month features a piece from first-grade student and aspiring author Tyler Palcer.
One cold, rainy day three kids burst in to the park. They saw a sculpture of a dinosaur. It had a paper bag. Suddenly, they grabbed the bag. They soon noticed it was packed with chalk. Next, one girl grabbed a piece of a bright shining yellow chalk. Then, she drew a sun. They fearlessly stared.
Mysteriously, the sun stood up from the cement. This time it was the real sun. As quick as a bird the sun was already in the high pitched sky. Instead of a sad rainy day, it was a happy sunny day.
After that, a little girl snitched a piece of chalk out of the bag with a fearless grin. This time it was angry. Later on, the chalk poofed out of the ground. This time it was clattering butterflies.
After watching the butterflies fly away, a curious boy grabbed a green crayon and drew a dinosaur. Then, the “dinosaur” came alive. Everyone screamed loudly. They ran from him very fast. They tried to escape, but he was slowing them down. They raced to the playground, up the stairs, through the slide, and immediately stared.
Secretly, the boy slid down the slide and the dinosaur screeched along the sidewalk and trapped the boy. Then, he licked his lips.
Luckily, the boy still had his colorful chalk and drew a cloud with rain. Then, the clouds turned light gray with white spots on the surface. It was raining. Finally, the clouds turned dark gray with white spots around it. Suddenly, the rain got heavier and heavier until the dinosaur all collapsed in on itself.
In the end, the dinosaur was defeated, the kids put the chalk back, and it was a happy day!
