Product Description

This packet includes a fill in the blank Missing poster to create one of the characters in the story and a series of writing prompts based on different characters points of view.

I use this activity to teach a number of writing lessons.  These are from the Common Core Standards:

English Language Arts Standards – Reading: Informational Text – Grade 5

“Analyze multiple accounts of the same event or topic, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent.”

English Language Arts Standards – Writing – Grade 5

“Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.”

Narrative writing in our state is tested with an annual writing prompt.  I use this lesson to teach students to expand a prompt and see possibilities.

When I have taught this lesson, I have already reviewed first person, second person and third person.  I intentionally wrote the prompt in second person and the sample beginning lines in first person.  I allowed my students to write their stories in third person.

Some of my students wanted to write in the horror genre, making an evil snowman.  We talked about it as a class, paying attention to our intended audience, and tailored our events accordingly.  You as the teacher will need to decide what kind of stories you feel are appropriate for your classroom.

I hope you enjoy this activity.
