    Hi everyone,

    I am a year 1 teacher and the first theme for talk for writing is 'wishing tale'. It has to fit into the 5 boxing up sections:

    Opening: MC wants something badly
    Build up: MC tries to get it
    Problem: MC is prevented by some sort of difficulty
    Resolution: MC overcomes the difficulty
    Ending: MC gets what they want. (Was it worth it?)

    Has anyone got any ideas of a wishing tale that fits? I'm really struggling to think of any ideas!

    Cinderella is a possibility, perhaps? (Main character could be either Cinderella - who wants to go to the ball - or Prince Charming - who wants to find the girl he was dancing with.)
