We Are Authors!

Over the past several weeks, we have reviewed different aspects of writing a story. We brainstormed lists of characters, settings, problems, and more. Then each child chose a setting, a problem, and one or more characters and began writing a beginning, middle, and end to their story. Next, they needed to make sure they included a solution to their problem. Each child also added three or more "fancy" words (adjectives) and dialogue. We went through the process of editing and then we learned about and created page breaks in their stories. Finally, each child typed up their own pages, typed a title page, and finally illustrated their pages. Please enjoy the stories read by the authors. I am so proud of them and I know you will be, too! (If needed, push pause on the iPod to stop the music so you can hear their voices.)

**More stories will be posted as soon as they are "published."
