Cows = Characters
See = Setting
Pretty = Problem
Sunflowers = Solution
This works great for eight-year-olds learning the parts of the story they should include in a retell. Up to problems, it’s also helpful for writers to ensure they’re making the most of the elements. Are the characters interesting? Do they have issues? Does the setting add to the story in some way? Are the problems really problems, or are they goals?
Right around here is where things start getting fuzzy. Because solution isn’t really the right word.
