Our warm-up today was to begin writing an Abecedarian poem. Afterwards, we reviewed the element of dialogue in a story and I passed out a handout with the rules. Students then wrote a sample passage in their notebooks. The last element we reviewed was point of view, which was also accompanied by a handout. Afterwards, the class was given the food fight scenario and asked to write from one character's point of view and select 1st, 2nd, or 3rd person. Tomorrow, students will begin writing their own flash fiction pieces.
