We practiced story writing this week. As a class, we completed a story map before beginning to write our very own story. Our map had six sections. The setting, characters, problem, goal, event and end. We brainstormed ideas and filled in our map. The rest of the week, we used our map to compose our very own story titled The Leprechaun on the Loose Two!. We talked about the sequence of events in the story and used our story map to guide us along the way. After our story was complete, we made our own leprechauns and a pot of gold!
Our class story:
One day on the farm a leprechaun was running around.The farmer was not happy because he was scaring the animals.The cow was eating and the leprechaun jumped on his head. Next, he chased the chicken away! The farmer's son had a great idea. He wanted to make a trap to catch the leprechaun.The kid decided to go milk the cow.While he was milking the cow, he moved the bucket.The leprechaun slipped on the milk and he slid into the trap. The little boy asked the leprechaun why he caused so much trouble. He said he was trying hide his pot of gold.The leprechaun said he will take the boy to the pot of gold, if he let's him go. He let him go and he took him to the pot of gold. THE END :)
