QUICK CONCEPT REVIEW

In class-4 you can learn to communicate in complete thoughts for different purposes. At the beginning of class-4, you may still write in short, literal, choppy sentences but as you progress through the year, you learn to write more detailed essays and stories to communicate what you are learning. To help yourself learn how to write events in a story for a more flowing account, you can think of the story as a recipe. Using story maps and plot planners, you can gain proficiency in using literary devices to spin tales that fascinate readers with interesting details.

The outline of a story is the basic framework of a story. It is often just a skeleton outline. It shows us some of the main facts of the story and tells in brief what the story is like. We have to fill in all the details relevant to the story and thus make up a readable story.
