CLARK — Over the next few weeks, the students of Nina Sinicropi’s fifth grade class at the Frank K. Hehnly School in Clark will be learning about narrative writing, culminating in the creation of their own personal spooky stories. Students will first be taught the basic characteristics of narratives, including the development of characters, plot and setting as well as the use of dialogue. Sinicropi introduced the students to brainstorming webs and asked her class to recall, or imagine a ghastly tale. These graphic organizers will aid the students in clarifying a concept before the formation of a rough draft for their narratives.
