Tree Stories 3319 outlines a simple story development approach available to young and old - especially when writing in groups ...
We used it today - see the pic and video to below.
Today - at the suggestion of Bella - who turned 10 yesterday - three of us wrote a short story ...
Bella picked up a large size recipe card and pencil ...
She said, "I'll start. I'm going to write no more than 2 sentences before I fold the paper over, and give it to you - with the pencil."
Smiling, she turned to the paper. The pencil was careening over the card.
Folding the paper, she said, "The main character's name is Popsicle."
I nodded, and started writing. I added a long sentence ))smiles
I folded and passed it along.
The second person added her sentences before returning the card and pencil to Bella.
She wrote the ending.
Below: the folding process (video) + pics of the card with our writing.
Next, we each read our section of the story ...
Let me assure you Popsicle had a great adventure.
We added the name Popsicle as we read ...
Once upon a time there lived a kitty named Popsicle ...
Popsicle found three picnic tables with lots of egg potato salad and ice tea - oh yea! ...
Popsicle chased a grizzly bear. The bear turned around and stopped running. Popsicle jumped ...
... into a hole filled with candy.
Okay - how did Bella know Popsicle would jump?
I think the trees were whispering ))smiles
From my head, heart, and hands ...
a simple say
nay, I wrote
what say you
a simple story indeed
