Beginnings, or leads, are an important tool to use in writing. They hook your reader so that he/she wants to read more. However, they can be challenging to write. This packet will help your students become better writers by introducing seven different types of leads. It is Common Core aligned and goes along perfectly with narrative, opinion, and informational writing.
Included in this packet is:
-A reference sheet for students to use in the classroom or to help with homework (Great for student binders or posters)
-Which Lead? An activity sheet that can be used as an in-class activity or homework (with answer key)
-Strong Beginnings/Leads Homework
-Strong Beginnings/Leads Rubric
-Fun Writing Paper
I also have another product that supplements this packet perfectly and includes an interactive Power Point. Check it out here:
