Student Writing: "The King's Story"

The King’s Story

by Musa, grade 5



Once upon a time there was a king who ruled the kingdom. He was very strong. He could beat anyone in the world. Once a giant tried to beat him but the king was too strong. He was sooo exhausted. He went to sleep.


As he was sleeping a fairy came and made the king an ant. Then the giant was laughing so hard that he said, “Now I am the strongest.” Then the ant got mad and bit the the giant a lot of times. Then the giant got scared and ran away. Then the king got big again and celebrated.



This piece is by Musa, an After-School Homework Help student. Musa wrote this piece at the Writers' Table while imagining what life would be like as an ant!
