Today is our school's Young Author's Day. Since I regularly attend a writing conference each year, I am excited to present a session and share my love of writing with upper elementary students.
Here is a link to my free printable: Heroes and Villains. I want to emphasize developing characters that each want something. This creates conflict in the story. If we have time, we will create a climactic scene with action, dialogue, and description.
I'll let you know how it goes.
