Objectives

To add dialogue to writing to make it more interesting.

 

Anticipatory Set

Have a sentence on the board:  The house was burning.  

Get all excited.  Pretend it is the best story you have heard.

Ask the kids why they aren't as excited as you.

Probe until you get them to tell you that it is missing details.

Discuss the concept that dialogue also adds to a story.

 

 

Lesson Steps

Take out your writing piece from yesterday (lesson plan title: Trying New Things)

Today we are going to work on adding dialogue to your piece.

Reread First Sleepver by: Carole Mohr 

Work on the piece on the board.  The house was burning.  Add dialogue.  Perhaps, I yelled to my mom, "Help there is a fire!"

Students work independently adding at least one dialogue.

Share out.

Extension Activity

Students can add another paragraph to their story or write another paragraph using dialogue.
