CLASSROOM SLICE OF LIFE STORY CHALLENGE: DAY 23 OF 31
Welcome to Day 23!
Do you have a sibling? A best friend? Lydia from Max and Kam’s Class Blog wrote about her best friend, and sibling, who is also her dog! Notice how Lydia uses a comparison (her dog is like a younger brother) to get started with her writing. Writers do this all the time. A good comparison or metaphor can take you far! Here is Lydia’s post from her blog, called About That…
My dog is my favorite sibling. He is like a much younger brother who wants to play fetch all the time, and always wants to bite me. When I come home from school, he is always there and thrilled that I am home. I usually sit down on the couch to take my shoes off, and he leaps onto the couch, tail stub wagging furiously. He will usually make cute awoo-woo noises, and then he will growl and sit on my lap. He will usually sniff my face, and then lick it twice, because he wants to make sure I haven’t been cheating on him with other dogs. Then he will either go get a toy, or he will curl up on my lap and not allow me to move. My dog is the greatest.
You might try this strategy as well!
