During ‘Writer’s Workshop‘, we explored the different ways we can move our story forward. Using ‘Transition Words’ and phrases in stories, helps the story flow naturally.
We talked about the story mountain, discussing the beginning, middle, problem, solution (resolution) and end.
The students took turns to talk about the different transition words and word groups, deciding together where these words may be used in a story. We practiced including these words and phrases in short stories, exploring how they help us sound like storytellers.
The students were encouraged to think about how they might use transition words in their own story writing. They moved to practice their craft during ‘Writer’s Workshop’.
- How would the story start?
- What word(s) might we use as we move from page to page?
We wonder what YOU might do to sound like a storyteller…
