This the first product in a coming series called "Creative Writing at Theville." In each product, I introduce a character who represents a specific creative writing skill, write a short story that is high-interest and engaging for teens, and include activities that help students practice this skill.
This product includes:
1. A short story about Penelope, a young girl who loves music, specifically the "chill-hop genre. The music is personified as something that helps her get moving quickly in the morning, and something that gives her energy.
2. 3 activities for students to engage in after reading that help identify, analyse, and use personification.
3. A lesson plan for teachers or a sub to follow.
4. An answer key.
5. A poster to display in the classroom after reading.
