For your main activity today, I would like you to write the opening of a story. Your story is going to be based on your current reading book.
This will be the opening line of your story:
"I opened the book and suddenly one of the characters jumped out!"
In your story I would like to see:
- a character description
- 2-6 lines of dialogue between you and your character
- an action section - what do you and the character do?
- use a metaphor or simile in your character description section
- correct speech punctuation (" " around what is said, new line new speaker, punctuation before the second ")
- use your dialogue to show something about your character's personality, e.g. are they brave? Shy? Bossy? Show this through what they say!
