Hello, writers and teachers,
Happy Earth Day! And congratulations on successfully completing all state and district assessments! :)
We have six weeks left of school, and we need to make them count. We will be focusing on the fictional narrative (fun!).
This week your task will be simple: Come up with an idea for a story. Here are a few tips:
1- Base your story on a personal anecdote, modifying it to make it more interesting (make sure to change names, etc.).
2- Chose a manageable premise (an incident). Remember that you will be writing a short story, not a novel.
3- Choose something you would enjoy reading.
4- Gather images to help you imagine the setting, the characters, and the action.
5- Imagine that your story will be made into a movie.
Most importantly -- have fun!!!
P.S. Eat chocolate; it's good for you!
