Extension Week: Writing Realistic Fiction

This week, Grade 2 students are writing their second stories of the year, a realistic fiction story. Realistic fiction is any story that has characters, settings, and evens that did not really happen, but could happen. This is in contrast to fantasy stories that are set in places that can't be real and have characters and problems that could never exist in our world. Examples of realistic fiction are the Henry and Mudge books, Nate the Great, and Horrible Harry. The students have already reviewed story writing and will begin prewriting and drafting on Monday. I am excited to see their finished stories. Below is the prewrite sheet we will use to plan our stories.
