Tell Me A Story is my version of "Picturesque Writing".
I created ‘Story Paper’ notebook pages to use in a Creative Writing class at co-op one year. Ages ranged from K- 8th grade in one class.
Each week for the fourth graders and older, I gave them an extra challenge. I encourage them to:
- use a thesaurus on two words,
- "ly" adverb,
- who/which clause in the middle of the sentence,
- strong verb
- quality adjective
- when, while, where, since, as, if, although clause in the middle of the sentence,
- because clause in the middle of the senctence.
