Patsy Sommer Elementary Drawing

Thank you for letting me visit your school. I enjoyed reading my dog stories to each of the kindergarten, first, and second grade classes. You were a fabulous audience and an inspiration. I hope I also inspired you to use your author’s eyes and see the small moments that happen to you every day. They are just waiting for you to turn them into good great stories. I would love to hear from you. And just to prove it, I’m going to have a drawing.

NOTE: Put your FIRST NAME, GRADE, and TEACHER on anything you write, draw, or type. “No names” get no prizes.

How Do I Get My Name In The Drawing?

  1. Draw a picture to go with my dog story. Give it to your teacher and I will publish it in a gallery on this website. (Picture gets your name in the hat one time.)
  2. Leave a comment here on my website. Did you think of a different ending for my story? Do you want to see anything taken out or added? Revising is the key to making a good story GREAT! You should see some of my earlier “RUFF” drafts. Yikes—not good at all! (Each comment gets your name in the hat one time.)
  3. Did I inspire you to write a small moment of your own? If so, write that story at home and post it to the comment section of this website or email it to me at the email address you were given at school . (A story gets your name in the hat five times!)

I will hold the Patsy Sommer Elementary Drawing on Tuesday morning, April 24. Winners will receive their prizes at school at the end of that day. The total number of winners will depend on the amount of participation.

NOTE: Put your FIRST NAME, GRADE, and TEACHER on anything you write, draw, or type. “No names” get no prizes.

Be sure to have your parent help you use a computer to enter the drawing.  While you are here, take a look at Bear and Jordan’s biographies, too.  They each wrote a little about themselves.

    • Great job, Emerson! Thank you so much for drawing a picture and telling me your favorite part. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Sarge’s dreams. They were pretty silly, weren’t they? I have entered your name into the prize drawing SEVEN times! Way to go! I love your story idea, too. I’m curious about a few things and would love to hear more. Can you tell me what things the dog barked at? Did he or she bark just during the day or at night, too? How long did you have your pet before you had to give the dog away? Don’t forget to check back in a week to see your drawing published on this website.

  2. 1. My dog picture will be turn in to my teacher.
    2. My favorite part of the story is when the dog say “bye-bye” at the end of the story.
    3. My dog is a spoty white chihuahua and it is very cute.

    I liked your story about Sarge, it was cool. The name Sarge sounds like an army name. I wouldn’t change anything about your story.

    • Thanks for the compliment, Avery! You are right about the name Sarge. I picked it because it can mean an officer in the army OR an officer in a police force. I thought that fit his character since he’s trying to protect his neighbors. 🙂

  4. Nathan Gage ( 1st grade, Mrs Ashby’s class)
    1. I have drawn a picture of my favorite part in both stories: NYoPD and Goldielocks and Bear
    2. My favorite part of the story in NYoPD is when Bear took up all the space in the back seat of the car. My favorite part of the story in Goldielock and Bear is when Sarge asked the neighborhood dogs if the cat had teamed up with the dogs
    3. I have great stories about my golden Retriever . My dog jumps on the trampoline and slides down the slide with me.

    • Thanks for sharing your favorite parts, Nathan. Your golden Retriever sounds like a lot of fun! I’ve never seen a dog on a trampoline or slide. Cool! I encourage you to pick one of those small moments and write about it. It would make an excellent story.

  5. I believe I switched the stories. My favorite part in Goldielock and the Bear is when Bear took up all the space in the back seat of the car. My favorite part of the story in NYoPD is when Sarge asked the neighborhood dogs if the cat had teamed up with the dogs

  6. I enjoyed listening to Sarge’s story and wouldn’t want to change the ending of the story.

    Just to share a small moment…I would like to own a dog one day and I hope that my dog doesn’t have nightmares and has only good dreams, has a lot of fun with me and lives with me happily.

    • Mihir, I appreciate you leaving a comment. I’ve entered your name into the drawing. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the story and ending. I hope you are able to get a dog one day, too. They are a lot of responsibility, but they bring my family plenty of happiness.

    • You are very welcome, Asmita! It was my pleasure to read to your class. Thank you for your comment. I’m glad you thought the story was funny. My dogs make me laugh every day. I’ve entered your name into the prize drawing.

    I have drawn a picture to go with my dog story and gave it to my teacher yesterday. I thought about a different ending to your dog story. both dogs go to the doctor(vet) and one dog was very scared and the other dog was trying to help the dog for not being scared by saying” i met the vet before and he is super nice”. then the both dogs became best friends.
    Thank you for coming and reading the story to us. i really enjoyed listening to the story.

  9. I just received your drawing, Inyaa. Wow! You are a talented illustrator. I also love your idea for the ending with the vet. Were you thinking this would be the ending to Goldilocks or the detective NYoPD story? It could kind of work for either one, really, but I was wondering what your thoughts were as an author. Thanks again!
