The ABCs of the Three Little Pigs

Promote sentence variety through an engaging writing activity. First, read through a plain version of Cinderella and discuss what makes it so boring, focusing on sentence structure and beginnings. Then, read a more exciting version and examine the reasons this story is more successful.  The final product will be a series of 26-sentence stories that creatively tap into different structures in order to include every letter from A-Z.
