I've been working with 4th graders this week, giving them some pointers on how to write a picture book. We worked on creating a character and a premise for their stories one day. We talked about beginning, middle, and end the next day, and yesterday I showed them how to edit and revise.
I thought I share with you five of the story lines/titles they came up with.
1) Gigi the Dancing Dog
2) A mouse that believes he is king
3) An ant and a wolf discussing how to write a picture book
4) The Flying Elephant
5) A Star Wars story with cats as the characters
As you can see I have had an interesting week! How has our week been? Have you read anything as intriguing as these premises and titles?
