This is a little bit different from my other Story Bite posts. I wanted to try this format and see if young writers would this kind better (maybe I’ll just mix it up in the future). In this post, I’m sharing a video for a series created and hosted by Debbie Ridpath Ohi called Ask Me to Ask, in which authors and illustrators share tips relating to their crafts and answer a question.
Here’s my contribution: how to write an action scene. This could be a good introduction to my other posts on this, Story Bite Number 14 and Story Bite Number 15.
I love that Debbie used Minecraft in her intro.
What do you think? Was this fun?
If you’d like to share your story bite action scene with me, please submit it through your teacher or with your school email address or home email address and include: your first name, grade, school’s name (or “homeschooled”), town, and state.
Teachers: if your make story bites part of a lesson, please let me know how it went. And share them! I’d love to see your students’ work.
Thank you for all of your informative posts. Your ideas are wonderful and I have used mamy of them with my students who are in love with your books. Thank you.
Thank you so much. I’m glad these posts have been useful for your students. My best to your students as they finish up this year.
Diane, this was adorable AND brilliant! 😀 <3
Thank you! I had to ponder how to do this dramatically, and then borrowed some of my son’s old Lego pieces. It was a lot of fun to put together. I hope it inspires kids to write.
