Ms. Nelson Writings

Nelson is Missing and wrote a few types of writings
based on that book. First, we wrote a DESCRIPTIVE
writing that described Ms. Nelson and Ms. Swamp's
appearance and personality. Next, we wrote a COMPARISON
writing that compared Ms. Nelson and Ms. Swamp's
similarities and differences. Finally, we wrote a
PERSUASIVE letter that tried to convince Ms. Nelson to
come back to school, using evidence from the book as
examples to back up our reasons.

Ms. Nelson the Friendly Teacher -
Ms. Nelson is a friendly teacher to her
kids. She is always polite to her children even when
they are rude. She is sweet at story hour. Her soft

Ms. Swamp the Nasty Witch Ė Descriptive
Ms. Swamp is very mean to Ms. Nelsonís
class. She is strict and never lets them stop doing
schoolwork. She has a loud, snappy voice that scares the

Comparing Differences of Ms. Swamp and
Ms. Nelson is a kind teacher with a
lovely look and the kids like her better than Ms. Swamp.
She also loves her children, reads to them at story
hour, and is very smart. Though, Ms. Swamp treats the
kids like slaves, they are personally learning a big
lesson. That way, Ms. Nelson hopes that they act well,
instead of act up. So when Ms. Nelson got frustrated,
she dressed up as mean and ugly Ms. Swamp. Ms. Swamp is
very cranky. Instead of Ms. Nelsonís lovely soft voice,
she has a mean nasty, raspy voice. She tells the
children to do lots of work. Ms. Swamp makes the kids
tired, and they learn an important lesson about being
nice to the teacher. Ms. Nelson is loving, and the
children disrespected her. Then she gets unhappy. Her
personality is nicer than Ms. Swampís. Ms. Swamp is the
meanest teacher in the world!
Comparing similarities of Ms. Nelson and
Ms. Nelson has rosy cheeks that appear in
front of the class. Ms. Swamp has rosy cheeks too, but
not as rosy as Ms. Nelsonís. They both live at the same
house which is Ms. Nelsonís house. The both also have

Dear Ms. Nelson - Persuasive
Dear Ms. Nelson,
Please come back!
We want you to be back because Ms. Swamp
is a big meanie. She tells us to do nothing but
homework, homework, homework! Ms. Swamp doesnít even let
us play, or any thing else. Her personality is fiercer
than we though she was. I just hate that mean work,
work, work voice all because it hurts my ears.
You are also nicer and you read to us. I
like your soft, delicate voice. Your books are very
interesting, and when we try to get one, well, she
doesnít let us. She doesnít like us to read because she
thinks we are bad kids, and we really need to do lots of
works. I mean LOTS, lots of hard, challenging work. I am
so tired, so will you just read us one book, just one?
We also like your appearance, because it
makes us happy. Ms. Swampís is so ugly that I think you
donít even want to see her. She has black, ugly hair,
and a dress that is pretty much like a rotten black
pumpkin. You look like a fashion queen, while nasty Ms.
Swamp looks like a spoiled egg. You donít think that her
face will look pretty though. Her beady eyes are always
watching over us. Her pale skin is as white as snow. She
looks like a harmful rat! Please come back Ms. Nelson,
Your non-naughty student,
