Retelling Stories Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by our blog to see what's happening in our first grade classroom! This week we are working very hard on "retelling"stories we have read.
Write a Short Story in One Class! Middle Posted Sun Nov 4 This lesson offers a pressure-free and fun introduction to the elements of short story writing introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution. The finished products are absolutely amazing!
I use them as the basis for additional lessons on grammar, theme, setting, tone, perspective, and characterization.
With this lesson, students will create a short story chain. They will each write for five minutes on a selected topic.
When time is called, they will stop writing no matter where they are yes, even if it is mid-sentence! The person in the last seat of each row will pass their paper to the person in the first seat.
This continues until all students have had a chance to write one element of a short story Because of absences, some students might write twice.
This activity takes place for 35 minutes with students switching papers every five minutes. They have minutes to read the developing story before they start writing. As they are writing, tell them which part of the story they are responsible for i.
Before class begins, you will need to create 5 or 6 story topics. I usually create a wide variety to choose from, such as: Have the first person from each row come up to your desk and choose a topic.
What they choose is the topic the entire row will be writing on. I usually have my sheets folded so they have no idea what they will be getting.
Explain to them the idea of a short story chain. There will be some confusion at first, but they will quickly catch on.
Have every student write an introduction in the first five minutes. Switch and Read 2 minutes. They switch papers and read what has developed so far. Rising Action 5 minutes. Falling Action 5 minutes.I wrote my first short story when I was 8 yrs old.
I’ve written several short since then, but then I turned to poetry and that’s my true love. My short stories and my poems are all “confessional”, and according to my son, quite depressing. Tips for writing a great short story are based on the primary elements of fiction, no matter the length, character, plot, or theme.
But when writing a story of no more than 10, words, keep in mind that employing these elements will often require an adjusted approach.
