OPTIONAL Weekly Write: It’s Spring time!! There is a saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” Think creatively…What could April showers bring in an imaginary, different time or place? Create a world with a made up season. Think about Narnia, think about another planet! Think about cavemen, or futuristic times. It can be anything!  What does “April” bring in your new world? 

4. Write a short story using descriptive words (5 senses: sight, touch, taste, smell, hear to describe) and the story mountain: characters, setting, climax, and resolution. Make it at least 1 PAGE in length, but no longer than 2 pages. It’s a SHORT story not a novel 🙂

I can’t wait to read them. Think outside the box, and have fun with it!

5. When you are finished, underline your story according to this: Characters in RED, setting in ORANGE, climax in GREEN, and the resolution in BLUE. Keep it neat. I should still be able to read the words.
