Basics on the topic Narrative Story Ending—Let's Practice

Let's practice creating narrative story endings with Goopaw!

Transcript Narrative Story Ending—Let's Practice

Goopaw says get ready to practice finding... Narrative Story Endings. Read each story and think of an ending that will provide a sense of closure. Chauncey and his Dad were out fishing. After a few hours passed of catching no fish, they decided to move to another spot. Suddenly, Chauncey felt a tug at the end of his line. How could the story end here, giving the reader a sense of closure? (...) While there are many possible endings... it COULD end with Chauncey catching a fish. Let's try another. Ricki was looking all over for her favorite purple hoodie. She searched each room in the house with no luck until it was time to go. Accepting defeat she walked to her brother's car and saw something purple sitting in the back seat. How could the story end here, giving the reader a sense of closure? (...) There are many possible endings... it COULD end with Ricki finding her sweater in the car. Akon got a mysterious package in the mail. Inside, there was a capsule with a note that read, "Dinosaur seeds, just add water." Akon knew dinosaurs were extinct and didn't come from capsules, but put them in a dish with water anyway. How could the story end here, giving the reader a sense of closure? (...) There are many possible endings... it COULD end with a dinosaur toy growing from the capsule OR an actual dinosaur growing! Comment one of your ending ideas in the comment section below! Goopaw had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!
