Day 20 / 103 - The Squire Who Cried Dragon

This week, in our IEW curriculum, my children were learning about the basic elements of a story -- Setting and Characters, Conflict / Plot, and Climax / Resolution.  We discussed how every story needs to contain these same basic elements.

As a related assignment, they wrote a story borrowing a conflict and a resolution from a story they already knew, but creating the characters, scene, and setting themselves.  They rewrote The Boy Who Cried Wolf with a medieval theme, The Squire Who Cried Dragon. 

They produced excellent papers and even had a little fun completing the assignment!
