Flotsam - week 3
This week we are going to work towards writing a sequel (what comes next); a prequel (what happened before) or a new part to the story. Today we would like you just to PLAN out your idea.
Jot down your ideas and gather words and phrases to describe the people/creatures and places. Think back to how we do this in class to boost our vocabulary choices.
.....Don't get carried away and write the whole thing yet!
Today, we would like you to:
Time to get drafting!
You have today and tomorrow to write your story. We would suggest you break it down into 2 parts like we would at school rather than try and write it all in one go! Aim for maybe 1 or 2 paragraphs today.
And lastly, don't forget to think about your reader - make your story interesting and exciting to read!
Lesson 4: Continue drafting (and aim to finish!)
Today: Make sure you start by re-reading what you have written already. With fresh eyes, now is a good time to edit and improve what you wrote yesterday! Don't forget to use the ISPACE cards to help you vary your openers.
When you are ready, USE YOUR PLAN, and continue with your story. You should aim to complete it today if possible.
We will look forward to reading the end results!
Lesson 5: Publishing
Now it's time to present your story in an interesting way.
This could be an illustrated story (maybe you could present it as a book), a comic strip or storyboard. You could even make this into an audiobook or a film to share if you are feeling adventurous!
Have fun, be creative and we'll look forward to seeing the final results.
