Narrative Archer-style

Archer wrote this story on January 11, but it apparently has been hanging on the wall in his classroom (evidence: scotch tape remnants), and he only just brought it home. Yet another piece of the puzzle that is the way our number-obsessed, sequence-obsessed boy sees the world.

Title: How to make 8 snowmen

6 snowy days in a row I built eight snowmen.

First roll 8 big snowballs.

Then roll 16 more.

Lastly, Make sixteen raisins for the eyes and eight carrots for the nose. Then make 8 bananas for the smile.

I'll built 8 more next year.

I love it! I love even more that in first grade, teachers have creative assignments like this. Yay for creative writing.
