Mrs. Jones’ twins, Mike and Peggy, like to write stories. As a home schooler, Mrs. Jones gets tired of their “original” spelling and grammar. She decides, at the beginning of the third grade, that she will help with their spelling, but that it is time they learned enough about language arts to make their stories “fun to read”. OUR STORY BOOK is a long conversation between Mrs. Jones (Mom) and the twins whose assignments are to write stories. Mrs. Jones starts with WORDS because of errors in the twins earlier stories—“gonna”. The questioning twins turn the discussion of the ALPHABET into an introduction to Greek roots. After conversing about when RULES may or may not be broken, Mrs. Jones introduces all the kinds of words and their peculiarities. The conversation winds up with WHITE SPACE and MARKS.—The twins’ last stories are “fun to read”. OUR STORY BOOK has a workbook feature. It is addressed to OUR FRIEND. After the stories the twins wrote for their assignments, there is a page for OUR FRIEND on which to write his or her story.
