This product is perfect for two mini-lessons on bold beginnings. It includes a 16 page power point with 10 pages of various beginnings. The first half of the PowerPoint gives your students catchy names of different ways to begin a narrative piece of writing. The second half of the PPT shows your students how one topic can be used in a variety of beginnings. This product also includes two printables for your interactive writing notebook.

Bold Beginnings features the beautiful artwork of Nikki from MelonHeadz Illustrating. It happened to be Veterans Day when I created this product so I used her Welcome Home Soldier pack.

Thank you so much for purchasing, previewing, or adding Bold Beginnings to your wish list! I appreciate any and all feedback.
