This lesson was designed as a library lesson for Kindergarten and 1st Grade students to help them understand that a fiction story can be "real" sounding. So often, students feel in order for a story to be fiction there has to be animal characters, or fantasy settings and crazy situations. Following a lesson on fiction vs. nonfiction lessons, I pull this lesson up to help them author their own realistic fiction. It also introduces them to basic story elements.

There is a completed story on my blog athttp://mellissazipp.blogspot.com/2014/11/writing-fiction-story-with-littles.html.
Note: I used Keynote to complete the technology portion of this lesson with the students. I find Keynote is a quick, easy presentation tool to use with the ability to record sound and create a movie. PowerPoint can do the same, but with more difficulty.
