4 LETS TALK ABOUT CIRCLE STORIES! Here We Go!

5 A Circular Story is like a Circle! When you look at a circle, can you see where it starts and ends? No, but thats okay! A circle can just keep going and going and going. Did you know that a story or a book can do that too, because they can! Want to find out how? Click the sun!

6 Different Kinds of Stories In a circular story, something happens that makes the story start over again and again and keep going like a circle. Its different from a story that has one start and one end. This kind of story is called linear because it looks like a line: StartFinish There are other kinds of stories too, but we want to find out why a circle story is a circle. Click on the smiley face when you are ready to find out!

7 Why is it a circle? A circle story is a circle because of cause and effect. These also happen in other kinds of stories but they are really important to circle stories. This is how they work: Something happens first. This is the cause. Something else happens because of the first thing. This is the effect. In a circle story, the cause and effect parts of the story keep going until something causes an old effect to happen again. This is how the circle keeps going and going! Lets see how this works in a story. Click on our mouse friend to find out!

8 If You Give a Mouse a Cookie In the story, a boy gives a mouse a cookie. This causes the mouse to ask for some milk. After finishing his snack, the mouse does a few more things before drawing a picture to go on the refrigerator. Looking at the refrigerator causes him to feel thirsty and ask for some milk. If he has milk, he will probably want a cookie to go with it. When he asks for milk, the mouse causes the story to start again! Click the cookie to see if there are more circular stories!

9 Other If You Give Books Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond have written several fun If You Give books. The characters are always reminded of the first thing they are given and that starts the story over again! Be sure to check them out in your school library! You finished this part!

11 Write Your Own Story! One way to really see how circle stories work is to write your own! For this project, you will need a large circle piece of paper folded into about 8 sections (your teacher can help with this), a pencil and an imagination! As you are writing, make sure you have your character remember or be reminded of something from the beginning of your story. This will cause the story to go back to the beginning and start over again. Now you are a circular-storywriter! Congratulations! Youve earned a cookie (click it to return home).
