About This Product

Write A Story Called 'Why I Should Have Stayed In Bed' (7-11 years): A Teaching Resource

This creative and innovative teaching resource aims at helping children between grades 2 and 6 to develop their creative writing skills. The resource centers language arts with particular emphasis placed on narrative structures.

'Lost': A Model Narrative Structure

The students are first introduced to a story called 'Lost.' This story serves as a reference point for discerning how character, setting, and plot are woven together in narratives. The narrative structure is subsequently explained in terms of these three elements:

  • The opening paragraph: This sets the scene.
  • The middle part: It builds suspense by progressing various events sequentially.
  • The resolution (end): Here lies closure or the solution to what has been built up throughout the text.

Moving from Understanding ‘Lost' to Creating Original Stories

Learners use insights from studying 'Lost’ to create original narratives of similar structural detail. For those struggling with starting, incomplete sentence prompts serve as kick-starters.

Focused Vocabulary Enhancement And Different Writing Techniques Introduction

Apart from boosting creativity through prompts, this teaching aid places an importance on vocabulary enhancement by suggesting alternatives for common words such as better adjectives or impactful verbs and adverbs.

  • In-depth coverage of different writing techniques such as simple sentences vs compound ones or complex sentence structures along with extensive engaging with connectives is an integral part of this course material.
  • This toolbox covers key spelling rules alongside grammar tips fostering all-around literacy growth.

Design and Implementation Flexibility

The content is neatly packed into a PDF file for easy distribution among large classes digitally or physically. By catering to diverse learning requirements, it allows teacher flexibility in implementation.

Special Educational Needs Catered Too

This resource goes beyond standardized test prep to inclusively cater for learners with special educational needs or those learning English as a second language while subtly ingraining grammar basics and vocabulary.
