NARRATIVE WRITING – PROFESSOR PLUM

Today we are going to start our first narrative (story).  Using the picture below, you need to imagine what might be going to happen, or perhaps why this is happening; what happens next? What could go wrong? Anything is possible – this is your story!  🙂

PROFESSOR PLUM  – click on the link for the image.

REMEMBER THE PARTS OF A NARRATIVE ARE:

SETTING

CHARACTERS

COMPLICATION

EVENTS – at least 3

RESOLUTION

ENDING

We are going to learn how to use a piece of blank paper to plan each of these sections, so you will never have to have a planner from the teacher again.  🙂  Today we want to finish our PLANNING so that tomorrow we can start our DRAFT in our Draft Writing Books!

REMEMBER TO: 1. PLAN      2. WRITE YOUR FIRST DRAFT (Write like a writer)            3. PROOFREAD (Read it again, like a reader); 4, EDIT (make all the changes you can – spelling; adding details; changing words (vocabulary)); 5 PUBLISH (your good copy);         6. SHARE – read it to a peer or use the Author’s Chair to read it to the class.  🙂
