The first grade students have read a lot of realistic fiction this year and now they are learning how to write in the same genre. The children love to tell stories and pretending, and this unit invites them to do both. They have been challenged to create a character, have the character face a bit of trouble, and get the character out of trouble giving readers a satisfying ending. The students have stayed with the same character for multiple books resulting in each student being the author of a series! The children are working very hard to edit one book from their series to share at the upcoming writing celebration on May 19th.
