This is a set of six hand drawn booklets that provide familiar and attainable mentor texts for teaching beginning, middle, and end. You will receive a zipped file. One file includes PDFs of the booklets. Each booklet comes in two forms - one with blank lines for student writing, and the other with a sample text.
The second file is a SMART board file with the same images and text lines. This makes shared writing a possibility, either before or in conjunction with independent writing.
The stories include two nursery rhymes and two fairy tales to provide familiar examples, as well as two narrative pieces. Four examples have clear, three part stories (beginning, middle, and end). Two stories have more complex stories with extended "middle" parts. This is great for teaching story structure as well!
