School has changed over the years in a lot of ways, the one I miss the most is the read aloud. I enjoyed listening to my teachers read to us, whether it was in elementary school or high school. We didn't always have to write afterwards but when we did, I enjoyed it. This was an opportunity for me to share how I viewed the story, how it made me feel, or to convey the message I thought the author was trying to get across.
Today's story is "Stick and Stone" by Beth Ferry. I found of video of the author reading the book to you. You might think it's a simple book or babyish, but, as you listen to the author read.
Think about how you would answer these questions:
1) Who are the characters in the story?
2) What is the problem in the story?
3) How did they solve the problem?
4) Have you ever felt like one of the characters in the story?
Today's writing challenge:
This page is a way for me to connect with students, share my passion to write, and hopefully instill this same passion in them as they learn at home.
REMEMBER TO INCLUDE IN YOUR STORY:
When you write, remember to answer these questions:
I gave you a few examples to get you started.
1) Who you are with?
(mom, dad, brother, sister.)
2) Where you are?
(inside, outside, house, barn)
3) How are you feeling?
(happy, sad, mad, discouraged)
4)What are you doing?
(playing, singing, dancing)
5) When did this take place?
(day, morning, afternoon, night)
