A cute angel

This week at the Carrot Ranch Charli Mills has set an angel prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that features an angel.

Usually I include my responses to Charli’s prompts in longer posts sharing some thoughts about education.

This week I’m going to leave it as a stand-alone, without the padding I usually provide. I am hopeful that the educational issues I have alluded to will be as obvious to you as they are to me. I’d love to know what you think.

        I would use it in my numeracy lessons – but at the same time visiting the difference in the spelling and pronunciation. We could have a lot of fun with that, while allotting time to other similar lexes. Next week, is there any chance that you could spare a part of it for us to get together? I hate being apart for so long!

          That sounds interesting, Robin. You students certainly benefit from the interesting lessons you devise for them. I know what you mean about being apart. We’ll have to make some time! 🙂

    Hi Norah, very neat story, and so easy to identify with. I liked the detail of the holiday. I’m sure you know the story about the Pope saying that the future King Alfred was an angel (as well as an Angle). We aren’t very clear with our language for kids sometimes. Thanks for this.

      Thank you for your comment, Caroline. I’m not sure if I should admit that I don’t know the story of the Pope and King Alfred. Is that a different Angle he was talking about? Language can indeed be confusing, and not only for kids! 🙂

      Thanks Beckii, and for the link to the snow angles. I can’t believe that I misread it as ‘snow angels’ and took a few moments to realise my mistake!!!! 😀

    What a wonderful take on Charli’s ‘Angel’ prompt this is Norah, I love it! How clever the way you presented it too, wow! I like the little girl’s ‘cute angel’ idea much better than the answer to test question…not sure I would be able to answer that properly today, ha 🙂

    Aw! Bless her heart! My cousin is so dear and sweet, but so literal. So when she misunderstands something it is often with the same results. She has a great sense of humor, too so she laughs once she realizes her slight turn from point A to point B. Wonderful flash, Norah. It reads best as it is arranged so I’ve saved the image and will use that as a sweet accompaniment to our compilation! O:-)

      Thanks Charli. I’m pleased you are able to use the image as is. I thought it added a little more context to the story.
      I love the way you have incorporated angles into your response (a slight turn from point A to point B)! Intentional? Clever! 🙂

    Perfect! The archaeologist famously answered the question ‘Give an example of how you know there is volcanic activity’ with ‘You might see smoke rising from the creator’ showing extraordinary belief in a divine hand.
