Rewriting stories

November 4th, 2008 at 06:17 pm

My son does have a very active imagination, but when it comes to writing them coherent format. HE tends to stick with rewriting stories he has heard, it bothered me till I found an entire English program that has rewriting stories as part of the package!

So for your amusement, the three little [igs as written by GMC:

Once upon a time, there were two knights. The first knight built a wooden house. A dragon came along and burned the house down. The knight ran to the second knight, who had just finished his stone castle. The dragon came to the castle and tried to burn it down. He could not burn it down! The dragon ran out of breath and left the castle alone.

This time I tried getting them to decide on a character, a problem and a solution before they started writing. JC had a short and simple story:

Susan wanted to be a witch. But she didn't have a robe. So she used her blanket.

    Both of those stories are very creative. It might be fun for you to research with them how many different versions there are of The Three Little Pigs, as well as other fairy tales. You could have them compare and contrast, etc.
