We have recently wrapped up our personal narrative unit in writing. As we begin our realistic fiction unit, we have been reading some great mentor texts such as Eleven, Amelia’s Road and Alexander Who’s Not Going to Move. Students are excitedly creating their own characters and plots for their realistic fiction stories. As a class, we have discussed problems that relate to our own lives and how our characters may experience the same thing. Ask your child what creative ideas they are planning for their story. Keep calm and write on!
