An Elephant that Can Talk

Arin works with her Silly Story Starters about once a week.  This week's story starter was:

Once she was finished writing her story, she drew a picture of an elephant.  We used book number 7 in the Draw, Write, Now series as a guide to drawing the elephant.  This was the first thing that she's drawn using a book as a guide.  She loved it.

Arin's Story:
Once upon a time there was an elephant named Elephant Talk.  He was at the zoo and he was trying to talk with his trunk.  Then he tried even harder and he was able to talk.  Then, the zoo manager came up.  The elephant talked to the manager and said, "Thank you".  The zoo manager got scared and ran away. All the other animals started laughing and laughing.  The elephant got embarrassed and stopped talking.  The End.
