Narratives- Fractured Fairy tales

We are learning to write a fictional narrative by adapting a fairy tale.

We will know we can do this when we can..
Follow the Writing Process – planning, draft copy, editing and publishing
Have a title
Write three paragraphs: an Orientation, a Complication and a Resolution
Write in past tense
Use direct speech (dialogue)
Use onomatopoeia, questions and similes to create pictures with words and build suspense

Charlotte said,"I have been learning to write a narrative especially a fairytale broken up and put back together in different ways.  A narrative has 4 parts - a title, orientation, a complication and a resolution where they solve the problem.  I have learnt to make my writing more exciting by using onomatopoeia and questions in my story. I learnt to write similes like I ran as fast as a lion.  Similes make my writing more exciting.  Next Step: I am going to do more similes in my story."
