What struck me most about your versions of the story were the names you chose for your characters. There was the typical Red Riding Hood, and not-so-typical Little Blue Hoodie, a Wolf, and then some kind of grandparent.
None of the grandparents had the same name. After two stacks of papers I began thinking about names and how the names we choose for our characters help describe the character for our reader - sometimes in a way more specific than "curly hair," or "polished shoes."
So, here's the idea to play with in your notebooks this week:
Below is a list of names we assign to grandmothers. Take a moment and write both a physical and internal description of each.
Ex: clothing, hair, objects the person carries (physical)
attitude, way of speaking, gestures, values, who or what they love (internal)
Take the time to think of each one; have fun with it. Notice how they are different, but how they are alike, too. You never know, one of these characters may appear in your story!
Note: You may also try this activity with 'grandfather.'
