Student Writer Instructions:
In The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!, author Jon Scieszka does a wonderful job of writing a story from the wolf’s point of view. We believe the wolf is really telling the story because of the VOICE Scieszka has captured with words. Wouldn’t it be fun to write a story where you could choose your own characters and from whose point-of-view the story would sound best?
Ready to fracture the Three Little Pigs? For this writing assignment, you will choose three little animals and one big, bad animal by pressing both buttons below. You will then decide which character is going to be the narrator, and tell the story from his/her perspective. This is called the point of view!
Your writer's challenge: Whoever it is you choose as your story's narrator--whether they they are actually nice or mean--make your reader like the narrator by telling the story from that character's perspective.
Use your imagination to create a problem that these three little characters will have, and to create what your big bad character is all about. But remember to write your story from the point-of-view of just one of the characters. Have fun!
