PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great resource for a writing workshop following Lucy Calkins Units of Study. One of Lucy's units teaches students to write about small moments vs. the entire experience. For example, I may have vacationed in Hawaii, but I should pick one moment from the trip (like seeing the ocean for the first time) as my story. She refers to these small moments as "seed stories" and the entire experience a watermelon. Clever!

When I teach this lesson I have my students practice telling their story aloud because they always want to tell EVERYTHING instead of zooming in to the smaller moments. This resource really helps with that.

Included in your download:
• A cover page to place in a writing binder.
• A writing graphic organizer to help "spit" out the "seeds" instead of choosing the "watermelon".
• 7 pages of "seed idea" lists for students to come up with. → This is a great resource for students to keep in their writer's notebook, or writing binder to refer back to when they need an idea to write about.
• Includes a generic "Seed Ideas" brainstorming chart, and a blank chart.
