Hello, grades 6 & 7! Today we are going to continue with our storytelling unit. Yesterday, we heard examples of dull vs. interesting stories, and we discussed what makes storytelling boring or exciting.
Today, I'd first like you to watch this video about storytelling:
Then I want you to think about the answers to the question: Why do we tell stories?
Using all of this information, I now want you to do the following tasks:
1.) Think of some of your favorite fairy tales, movies and/or stories from your culture.
2.) Write a paragraph describing these, answering the questions:
- Why do you like them so much?
- Which ones does everybody know?
- What is it about them that makes them fun to listen to?
3.) Copy your paragraph and paste it AS A COMMENT ON THIS BLOG POST. If you do not remember how to do this, please ask me or another student in the class for help.
Good luck and have fun!
