We've been working on narrative writing. Students created a Heart Map to help them with what they can write about. We write about what is near and dear to our heart.
Our focus has been writing an opening, three events, and a wrap up. Students are also including sequencing words in their writing.
After hearing many versions of The Mitten, students created their own version. Here are two examples.
Now that they're getting the hang of creating a story, they're using a story planner to plan their VERY OWN stories. Star Wars seems to be the rage right now. Some are creating stories about their families, trips, and pets while others are writing fiction.
