Young Author Lessons

 



 

We can learn from each other.

 

Here are some examples:

 

To be a good writer, we should

 

 

 

Use specific names:

 

A girl named Kate

his friend Ginger

The Whistle Forest

Ellie Faber travelled to Canada

Delaware River

Ruby, the Red Ant

 

Use lots of details:

a scream and boom

500 years

ant crawling on white napkins

two pickles, mustard, ketchup, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, and mayonaisse

mouth-watering, juicy, two-pickled hamburger

followed the path and smelled food

 

Use dialogue:

My mom called me and said, "Don't look for the river; look for a hidden path."

He yelled, "Help! Help! Help!"

She thought, "I'm going to eat this at lunch for tomorrow."

 

 

Use strong, vivid verbs:

bicycled

jumped

celebrated

crawling

navigate

shared

 

Use onomatopoeia

ear--ear--ear  (a creaking door)

 

 

 

Think of interesting titles:

Ugh!! Ants These Days

The Masabo Island

 

Story Sense:

Beginning: A girl loved mysteries

Middle:  A dark spooky thing grabbed it.

End: She shouted, "I want to go home!" and she woke up from her dream.

 

Surprise Endings

The ant sent him on a trip for wishes.

I went back and my hamburger was gone!
