First grade is hard work and we were feeling kind of stuck in a writing rut. Maybe you know of the feeling as "writer's block." Anyway, we decided as a class that we needed some time to write fiction stories and take a walk on our creative sides. We read a few fiction stories and compared the plot lines. We noticed they all have great characters, interesting settings, lots of stuff that happens, a problem that needs to be solved, and eventually a solution.
We used this cool ice cream sundae to start mapping out our ideas with the same story elements. We can't wait to start writing tomorrow! Stay tuned, these are going to be good!
