Today I want to teach you that series writers often tell a lot of important details about their characters in Book One of their series. This helps the reader understand the characters better and know what to look for in other books in the series. To have a great first book that introduces your character really well for the rest of the series, you should tell: Who the character is Where the character lives What the character likes How the character feels Who the character’s best friends or family are Important background information Take a look at the checklist template. Today you can either go back and improve book one of your series OR you can start a new series. As you begin, write your story on paper. Use the drawing tool on Seesaw to check off the checklist to show you did those things in your own Series book 1. When you’re done writing your book, put it on Seesaw by going to your journal and clicking the green plus arrow at the top right. Then use the camera tool and microphone or the video tool to show us and read us your book.
