Story Bird

Hello students!

In Language this week, we learned about narrative stories. For your Language activity (due in two weeks), you are required to log in to Story bird and build a narrative where you can create a story of your choosing. Make sure you narrative has all the required aspects such as characters, setting, an introduction, rising action, climax, falling action and an ending. Be sure to complete a rough copy within class time before posting your information online as you create your slides and continually save your work.  

Parents, this activity relates to the Language Arts curriculum. It allows students to explore a different way of communicating what they learned through an interactive activity.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to send me an email. 

Related Ontario Curriculum expectations (Grade 8 Writing): 

(Developing and Organizing Content) generate, gather, and organize ideas and information to write for an intended purpose and audience;
(Using Knowledge of Form and Style in Writing) draft and revise their writing, using a variety of informational, literary, and graphic forms and stylistic elements appropriate for the purpose and audience;
By the end of grade 8, students will: (Producing Finished Works) produce pieces of published work to meet identified criteria based on the expectations (e.g., adequacy of information and ideas, logic and effectiveness of organization, effective use of form and stylistic elements, appropriate use of conventions, effective presentation)
