9:00-9:30 Writing with Humphrey the Hamster

Writing Tips For Young Writers by Betty Birney (author of Humphrey books)
1.     Write something you’d enjoy reading. Have fun with your writing.

2.     The more you write the better you’ll get. It takes practice, so try to write on a regular basis.

3.     The more you read, the better your writing will be. Read a lot of different kinds of books, too.

4.     When you’re writing a story, you shouldn’t think about what other people will think of it or whether it will get published. You should only think about making it the best story you can possibly write. That’s all that counts.

5.     REVISE-REVISE-REVISE

6.     Try to get inside your characters’ heads. When I’m writing a Humphrey book, for instance, I feel just like a small hamster. I’ve learned to think, feel, act and write like a hamster.

7.     Once the story is down on paper, then you can go back and edit for various things. Sometimes I’ll go through and just look at dialogue. Does everybody talk exactly the same? Or do they have distinct and different voices? Have I repeated information or words?

8.     It’s helpful if you can put you story away for a few days (or a few weeks) before editing. You probably won’t have that much time. But if you put it aside for a little while and come back to it and read it, you’ll see things that need changing. (At least I hope so!)

9.     Go through it separately to check for spelling, punctuation and grammar.

10.  I always go through once and check for overused words. The most common are: “but,” “very,” “suddenly,” “really,” “also,”… etc.

11.  I also check for repeated words. You don’t want words repeated in one paragraph and then the next – unless you mean to. (I only say that because in the Humphrey books, Humphrey repeats things on purpose – for emphasis- that’s part of the way he talks.)

12.  And of course, you want to check for logic. Does the story make sense? Does one thing lead to another?

13.  Do you have dialogue? Or do you just say “this happened and that happened and then that happened.” A common problem in children’s writing is a lack of dialogue. But dialogue makes your characters come alive. It helps define them.

14.  Read your story out loud. You’ll catch a lot more mistakes that way.
That’s at least a beginning … and an idea of how much editing a writer does!

Now take a blank page and write in tiny letters like Humphrey! Pretend you are him and write what is happening at home or in your neighborhood. Does Humphrey get out of his cage? What happens?

CATCH UP: 

  1. GIFT FOR OWEN T. (DROP OFF AT SNOOPY LENDING LIBRARY)Owen T’s special good-bye bookIn your learning bag, you should have seen a manila envelope with a blue paper stapled to the front. Please complete this page and bring it with you to our drop off/pick up day at the flag pole on Wednesday, June 10th! If you happen to finish it early and are near school, you are also welcome to drop off the page to the Little Snoopy Library outside the school office. Here is a video reminder of the assignment

5-10 SECOND DANCE VIDEO FOR MRS. COSTA’S PROJECT: 5-10 second video of you dancing. Siblings, parents, nannies, pets, stuffies can join too! Show off your best dance moves! ☺If you would prefer not to dance, you are welcome to send in a fun picture (or two) from this school year and/or distance learning. Even if you choose to dance, you are also welcome to send in a favorite picture. To have some music to dance to, here are a few songs that will be included in the video!

Read to Someone

This is a fun time to “Face time” a classmate or family member and read together.  You can choose from the following ways to read to someone:

  1. Check for understanding. You share one book and take turns reading it.  One reads a page or two and when he is finished the other person “checks for understanding”.  This means you retell what happened in the story (who, what, where).  Then the other person reads a page or two…
  2. Fluency Practice: If you have older brothers or sisters, this might be the choice for you.  One reads a page out loud showing good fluency (taking breaks for periods, commas, using voice).  The other then reads the same page.
  3. Read 2 different Books: This is perfect if you are facetiming a friend or family member. You both get out good fit books and take turns reading a page or two of your own book.
