Isabella’s writing:

Winter Woman

Winter Woman is tall and wonderful.  She has light blue skin and dark blue hair.  She has a long aqua colored dress with a crystal crown.  She has pointy ears and big blue wings.  She has a wand with a big white snowflake at the top and has long silver streaks that shine in her hair like tinsel.

One day, Winter Woman was laying in her ice cold bed with her puppy, Snowball.  Then her big red alarm went off and that meant that there was a problem somewhere.  She went outside of her igloo house and saw people running everywhere.  It was a snow monster!  She raced as fast as she could towards the snow monster, took out her wand and spun it around in the air and …zap!  She destroyed the snow monster!  The mayor gave her a big crystal trophy and she became the biggest hero ever.
