Writing a story

If you click on the link below, it will take you to a website that has heaps of great ideas for a story.

We can choose ideas from any grade or come up with our own. Often story books are written to send a message or a moral to the reader. For example, Little Red riding Hood is really sending a message about "stranger danger". Perhaps we can come up with a message for infants students that our story will be based on...(eg. bullying at school, accepting people who are different, always telling the truth etc). Then we just need to start with one or two characters (they might be young ladies at a boarding school, they might be a pair of dogs out looking for adventure, they might be pirates etc etc) and devise a setting where the action occurs. Once we get started we can take it in turns of adding the next bit. We could even make a story that has lots of possible things happening and the people who read it can choose which way to go. A good example of this is in I hope this helps to get you started. Once you make a start (maybe just write it in an email) I'll add to it if you like. If you want, just list;

One or two characters

Where the story will occur

The moral or message

A basic plot or outline of what will happen in the story.

Good luck!
