We have been working on seeing the connection between reading and writing. One of the big aspects is noticing the story elements that are present in fictional text. We have discussed that fictional stories have a beginning, a problem, events where attempts are made to solve the problem, a solution to the problem and an ending. It is important students include all of these elements when writing a fictional story. Also, it is important that students are able to identify these story elements when they are reading as well.
