Student Writer Instructions:
Author David Shannon creates a fun and wonderful story with only a few words. "No" and "David" are used together in a variety of ways, aren't they?
You will be writing your own story today, inspired by both David Shannon's book and a sport or physical activity you enjoy.
First, click the buttons below to choose an emotion-word and a character name. Write them down on your worksheet. If you'd like to choose two or more emotion words to use in your story...you may.
Next, work alone or with a partner to come up with five or six different ways to string those words together. Write them down. Check your punctuation and spelling.
Finally, draft an original story by using the pre-writing worksheet your teacher will give...and using both your best emotion-filled sentences and details and descriptions.
Ahoy, Abigail. Ahoy!
Run, Roger, run, run!
Wilma, wow! Wow!
No! No! Norman, No!
Hey, Hannah. Oh hey!
