We have spent many weeks learning about the language and structural features of a narrative. We have analysed many narratives looking for the orientation, complication, series of events, resolution and ending. We have been on the hunt for verbs, nouns and adjectives as these are important components of descriptive language.
We applied our narrative knowledge and spent two weeks planning, drafting, making and creating our very own narratives! We were inspired after reading The Cranky Bear stories by Nick Bland…so we decided to write our own!
We took our time thinking about descriptive language, use of punctuation and stretching out our sentences. We had some very creative stories from the Cranky Bear waking up hungry, to him falling in a lake to him getting stuck in his cave! Our Habit of the Mind Creating, Imagining and Innovating was definitely in use!
To celebrate all our hard work we visited Kindy Blue to share our stories! The Kindy students welcomed us with kind words, big smiles and enthusiasm for a good story! Thank you Kindy Blue for enjoying our stories with us!
It was a great opportunity for us to practice reading with fluency and expression!
We loved seeing our ideas come to life!
Perhaps there is a future Nick Bland or Mem Fox amongst us!
