Boring and interesting

BOPDs are excited to share their vacation stories. We decided to make the experience different by following the structure of a narrative but using fictional names to relay our experiences so that classmates will need to guess whose vacation they are reading about. To do this, we spoke about how to make our stories interesting. Using four sentences from the book that Ms Ness uses for her read-aloud with us, we analyzed them and graphed them on a continuum with 'boring' and 'interesting' as endpoints. In this exercise we learned that the more detail a sentence has, the more interesting it is to the reader. Also that the most interesting sentence we encountered was one that had dialogue. We applied this idea to our writing and look forward to our guessing game!
