Gooney Bird Greene series by Lois Lowry is about a little, unique second-grade girl. She is known for telling exaggerated stories, though they are absolutely true. I would use these books to teach story elements and what it takes to write and tell a good story. A story can be based on a play on words or a thread of truth. You could have the students write their own exaggerated stories, using Gooney Bird Greene’s stories as examples and inspiration.
