Writing a Story (Narrative)

I am learning to write a narrative that makes sense.

I know I can do it when I write a narrative that makes sense.

We have written a lot of stories this year using a picture prompt and story starter in Grade One. Today, you are going to use some of your experiences at the park over the holidays to help you with some ideas for another story!

Independent Task

Today we would like you to write a story using the following picture prompt and/or story starter.

I was playing at the park when suddenly…

Continue this story from the sentence starter above.

Think about these things:

  • Do you have a setting?
  • Do you have characters?
  • Is there a problem?
  • How is the problem solved?
  • Do you have full stops and capital letters?
  • Does your writing make sense?

Maybe you can share your story in your class meeting in the morning!

Using a Picture Prompt to Write a Story

I am learning to use a picture prompt to help generate story ideas.

I know I can do it when I can write a story based on a picture prompt.

Yesterday, your task was to think of some interesting sentences to describe the picture above. Those sentences and ideas will help you with today’s learning.

Independent Task

Using the picture prompt as a starting point, your task today is to write a story.

You could use the whole picture as an idea OR just part of the picture that you can see, for example the balloons, the beach or the girl.

Don’t forget to include:

  • A setting – where the story takes place.
  • Characters – who the story is about.
  • A problem – What goes wrong for your characters?
  • A solution – How is the problem solved?
