Our Writing AKS in 3rd calls for us to write personal narratives and fantasy narratives. Personal narratives - easy. The kids just discuss experiences they've had, telling their own stories. But when I first saw fantasy narratives, I was taken back. But after a little thinking, I pulled out the book Peter Pan. The kids in Peter Pan could definitely be real, but the adventure they go on is a complete fantasy. We discussed how the kids flew (not in a plane) to Neverland. The kids didn't have parents or rules in Neverland. My students were able to make several connections because of this! Here's a graphic organizer I gave them to get their thoughts out and organized. It's yours...for free!
I'm off to the lake for the weekend with the hubby and some friends. I'm excited to have a little get-away and R&R. :) Hope everyone enjoys their weekend! See y'all Monday!
