Sample Add-On Story
Have volunteers read aloud each paragraph of the sample add-on story. Then lead a discussion:
- What problem does Connie have? (She wants to learn to tap dance.)
- Whom does she ask for help? (She asks Karen, Reba, her neighbor, and her dad.)
- How does Connie's problem get solved? (Her dad teaches her to tap dance.)
- What surprise happens at the end? (Connie didn't know her dad could tap dance.)
Tell students that their own add-on stories should involve a problem that characters one by one try to solve.
For an additional add-on story, share with students A Fable.
