Meadowview Elementary School: Who is Willie MacGurkle?

A drawing of a character with yellow hair, blue nose, 1 orange eye, 1 green eye, and smiling.Who is Willie MacGurkle?  No one really knows.  However, students in Mrs. Duncan’s fourth grade Language Arts class, at Meadowview Elementary School, have a couple of inferences as to who he might be.

Mrs. Duncan read a poem titled Willie MacGurkle.  The students had to listen to the story and illustrate Willie.  Afterwards we tried to infer who Willie MacGurkle really was.  This led to some amazing conversations and amazing inferences, such as: a Scarecrow, a homeless man, a gypsy, an undercover cop.  In the end all we could do was infer who Willie MacGurkle was.
