My kids were having trouble writing more than one sentence without adding the word "and" over and over and placing periods in the wrong places so I started having them write multiple sentences on a topic in different boxes. That is why I divided their writing paper into three sections today. Once they get better at writing multiple sentences on the same topic I will have them put them all in one paragraph or on one page.
Get the fruit. Stir the fruit. Eat the fruit.
Put the fruit in the cup. Stir the fruit. Eat the fruit.
I'm making fruit salad. I am stirring. I am eating.
I get the fruit for my fruit salad. I stir the fruit. I love fruit salad. I can eat fruit salad.
Put in the fruit. I stir my fruit. I eat my fruit.
These examples came from a teammate of mine. She was working with her kids on telling a story. She started them off with the first picture and sentence about seeing a dog. Then they made up their own story and filled in the next two boxes themselves.
I see a dog. I play with the dog. I go home.
