Help with w&r fable lesson 2


Recommended Posts

So last week we did lesson one. His first writing was a summary. Do then we outlined the original fable, and he wrote a story off of that. And it was much better.


He was upset that I had him write it twice, so this go round I want to set him up for success.


So the summary that he has to amplify is something he would have originally written. How do I help guide him to amplify the summary?

I like to tell my kids to think of the pictures n videos that could go with their story. Then we wonder if someone else would come up with the same images and actions as they did and how they might imagine it differently. With this they go back over their paper to use vocabulary and grammar to try to help their reader (or confine their reader) to the scenes as they, the writer, imagine them.
