PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Beginning, Middle, and End: Open-ended Story Writing Lesson, PPt with 61 slides and 150 PDF pages, including rubrics
UPDATED 11-25-2013

See also the PDF version of the same lesson.

*NOTE: This is a completely animated Power Point, in view slide show mode. Just keep clicking to see sequences numbered automatically. The PDFs are included in the zip folder. Students and teachers may move the numbers and sequenced activities in the normal mode, also.
Beginning, Middle, and End of story writing is something that emergent writers need to practice. (See Common Core standards, below) This Power Point reviews the beginning, middle, and end of some familiar stories. Sequencing of sentences is also covered. Students practice drawing a story using a graphic organizer for the three parts of beginning, middle, and end of their own story. Then, finally, students write their stories from the graphic organizer on three stapled pages (see separate free listing with the printable student pages) with the beginning on page one, the middle part of the story on page two, and the ending on page three. The three part drawing may be referred to as students think about which part of the story belongs on each page. Teachers and peer editors could say, "Tell me about your drawings." Telling about the drawing often prompts students to know what to write.

There are several beginning-middle-end work pages to choose from to differentiate this assignment. After students are successful with one, others could be offered. Included are open-ended "chapter books" for students to write.

I am excited to use the across the fingers idea with my grade ones. This goes perfect with a fairytale unit I do in March! I'm not super good with powerpoint and didn't realize that you have a smartnotebook version until AFTER I purchased! YIKES! Is it possible to easily convert?
On  February 10, 2013Wise Owl Factory answered:
Dear Paynelin: Thank you for writing. I've tried to help by uploading a zip folder with the SMART Board, Power Point, and the PDF. So, re-download, and get the zipped folder. Pull out the SMART Board file and PDF to save. For printing, select the pages you want to print and print just what you want at a time. The PDF part is separate in this zipped folder so that might help. Thanks again, Carolyn

Dear Kim Tyssen: I'm sorry you are having problems. The best thing to do when you have technical difficulties is to go to the bottom of the page, click on contact us, and open a help ticket. The tech help department at TpT is fabulous and understanding, I'm sure they will be able to help you. I assure you this has been a great seller and usually it opens! Carolyn

I bought the smartboard version of this. I purchased the PPT one by mistake. Would you please refund me the 3.00 for the PPT version? I do not need it.

Dear Jennrb66: I have contacted TpT help and opened a help ticket for you and copied your messages so they can help you. I don't think I can do refunds myself, but TpT will be happy to help you. Thank you so much, Carolyn
PS It is such a toss up to put these in a zip file together or what to do!
