Friday, December 17, 2010 was my tenth and last day of my Twisted Tales residency at Bissonet Plaza Elementary. It was a fabulous day and I had so much fun with the kids. My ten year old daughter, Kid Chef Eliana, came with me and we had a blast.

On this day my third and fourth grade students were performing their fractured fairytales. I chose a winner from each class and they read their stories to their peers. After all the stories were read, they voted on the overall winner. In third grade, the winners were Joshua, Brianna, Haley & Dawn from Ms. Fury’s class for their story, “Who Dats Crossing.” The students loved the story and everyone really got into singing the chorus. The winning stories for each grade will be posted in separate blog posts.

In fourth grade, the winners were from Ms. Naugle’s class: Evelyn, Angelique, Connor, Chad, Lajosh & Timmy for “Little Red Riding.” What a great story! Little Red Riding had a hot red Corvette. The big bad wolf was a mechanic. It was so cute. Good job, boys and girls! The students listening to the story really enjoyed it and laughed a lot.

I performed stories for the other grades but second grade was a love fest for Kid Chef Eliana!

I introduced her and her cookbook and they went gaga over her, asking her all kinds of questions! Kid Chef Eliana was a celebrity!
