Student Writer Instructions:
Have you ever thought about what you must sound like to your dog, cat, or your baby sister? What do they hear come out of your mouth? When you read Good Boy, Fergus!, you quickly see what Fergus hears (and ignores) from his owner over the course of a day.
For this writing assignment, you will tell a story (real or fictional) about a pet (real or fictional).
In your story, you will use great details to show your pet doing something that's kind of adventurous.
In your story, you will also include at least one other character who will say things to your pet. You might be the other character! When other characters in yoru story talk, they are to use interjections, imperative commands, and your pet's name. Punctuate these sentences correctly! Look again at Good Boy, Fergus! to think about where to put all your story's commas.
If you don't have a pet or don't know where to take a pet on an adventure, click the buttons below for some ideas.
Have fun writing!
