Writing Realistic Fiction

In Writer's Workshop, we have been working on writing Realistic Fiction.  The students are creating a fiction character who encounters and real life problem.  We have been using this awesome Fiction Unit by Amanda Nickerson of .  

We started out by creating a character.  The students took several days to develop the character.  They were asked to fill out a character development sheet to really think about what the character would like/dislike.  

After planning out a story by developing a character, setting and plot, the students are creating a story rollercoaster.

The students will begin publishing their work within the next day or two.  They are doing such a nice job and I cannot wait to see how they turn out! 

Our Focus Lesson today was creating a Powerful Ending for our story.
