    We are going to continue to write our story by randomly distributing the beginning of the story we started earlier. You are to read the LAST LINE ONLY and continue writing the story based on that line.

    •Again, make your story interesting and descriptive. Make the monster DO something. Remember to keep your story rated G. Write the next 10 lines and stop there. This is the middle of the story, so keep it going by having rich language, good details and actions. After you are finished, hand them to me and warm up by completing a couple of contour drawings.

    •Folder, lined notebook paper (If you missed an earlier day, come see me.)

    •Write a story with your monster as the star. There is no need to write a description of your monster, you’ve already done that. Start with “The monster saw me standing there and advanced slowly toward me.”

    •Make your story interesting and descriptive. Make your monster DO something. Your monster does not have to be bad and regardless you must keep your story rated G (this is a childen’s book, after all.) You are not writing the complete story today, instead write the first 10 lines and stop there.

    •Agenda: Bellwork, monster share, 1PP drawing, review.

    Bellwork:

    •Following my example you are to draw the monster in someone else’s closet. Try to make your monster match the writing as close as possible. Pay particular attention to the details that make that monster unique! THIS DOES NOT REQUIRE DISCUSSION! DO NOT ASK WHAT THE WRITER ENVISIONED! Draw the monster from the description ONLY!

Oh, and your monster doesn’t have to be bad! DO NOT COPY WHAT I WROTE!! Create your own, original monster description. DO NOT DRAW! I only want a description! Turn in when done.

    Bellwork:

    The Monster in My Closet!

    •Today we are going to start working with creative writing and book illustrations.

    •You need 8 ½ X 11 copy paper. Read the following description (on the next slide) of the monster in MY closet and draw him from my description.

    Draw the monster large enough to see and use details. Pay careful attention to the description try to match this with your drawing as close as possible. Use color as necessary.

    •I opened the door and there he was, the monster in MY closet. He stared at me with two red eyes the size of plump cherry tomatoes with beady, black pupils. His round, basketball shaped head was dominated by an orange, potato like nose and a large mouth that took up the lower half of his head. He was grinning wickedly now, showing his razor sharp teeth, and even though he was smiling, his furrowed brow told me it was not friendly. His head was covered in thick purple fur and seemed to teeter on a long, too thin neck that was at least as long as his head was tall. His round, purple fur covered body was twice as big as his head and rested on oversized, hairless, green feet that jutted out at opposite angles from his body. His hands dangled from long, skinny arms and his knuckles dragged the floor, showing long, cruel talons for fingernails.
