Take a look at this example: "What are you holding?" asked Kim. "I found it on the sidewalk," answered Tina. "You're so lucky! I wish I'd found it," said Kim. Do you know what Tina found? No! The author did not use narration in this dialogue. Take a look at this example: "What are you holding?" asked Kim when she saw Tina peering into her hands. "I found it on the sidewalk," answered Tina. Tina held up a smooth rock that sparkled in the sun. Kim's eyes widened as her jaw dropped at the sparkly rock. "You're so lucky! I wish I'd found it," said Kim. Do you know what Tina found? Yes! Using narration helped you picture what Tina had found. Think about a time when you meet someone new. Describe how you met. Narrate with dialogue your first meeting.

U3W2: "I can mix narration with dialogue"

Mixing narration with dialogue can help readers know what is happening in a story, where characters are, and what they are saying and doing. Using narration and dialogue will help you build strong paragraphs. Strong paragraphs are paragraphs that create pictures in other's minds. Read the attached example to get the instructions for this Seesaw journal.
