La ficción realista tiene personajes y sucesos que se parecen a personas y sucesos de la vida real. No el algo verdad. Por favor, disfruten las narrativas ficcionales escribieron por los estudiantes de doble idioma.

El primer dia de la escuela- por Fernando Tejada

Estoy muy feliz. Estaba emocionado. He estado jugando y llorando. Ahora tiempo par air a la escuela. Yo quería hacer algo muy importante para empezar la mañana. Me levanto muy temprano con la madrugada.

Quizás voy a caminar hoy a la casa de mi amigo, Isaac. Mientras una sombra negra no alcanzaba a ver porque la sombra es rápida. Entonces es un perro. Pedí ayuda. Ésta sombra es muy grande. Es un Great Dane. Entonces empezó a ladrar y perseguirme. Está lloviendo. Me siguió, y siguió hasta llegar a la escuela. Mi amigo Isaac estaba adentro con mi maestro. Me explico que el perro es de él. Fue un regalo del cumpleaños.

An Elephant in the Park by Mack Robinson, Jr

One day I was walking to the park. I was eating and walking at the same time. I saw people running out the park. Then I saw my friend running. I told him to STOP! I asked him what was going on? He said it was an elephant in the park. Then I went to go look. I heard stomping sounds. I was soo scared so I hid behind something. The elephant was coming. He was behind me and I had no idea. So, once I heard the elephant’s trunk, I started running. While I was running the elephant was chasing me. While he was chasing me I tripped over a rock and fell.

The elephant was going to squash me, but, Spiderman came. When he flew over me on his web, he was going for the elephant’s face. The elephant was trying to squash him. He was fast and swiped the elephant. He saved me and took me back to where I belonged.
