My Young Authors' Session: Heroes and Villains


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.
