After my initial assessment of students’ narratives at the beginning of the year, I saw way too much of the common things students do that holds back their writing.
Over use of ‘and then’ ,
‘sentences that go on for 4 lines and don’t have breaks and you can’t get a breath or know when to stop because there is no full stop and it is just 5 lines that go on and on’
Overuse of ‘The End’
Dialogue that takes up the whole page with no reference to who is speaking.
Eek! Every year. So I made some ‘tips poster’s to use as we developed our story writing skills. There are 8 posters in total, with a butterfly theme.
