Use Patricia Polacco’s inspirational stories Thank You, Mr. Falker and Junkyard Wonders to guide your students through the process of writing an extended constructed paired text response. These no-prep, printable pages have been created to guide your students through the process of planning and writing a five paragraph response discussing how personal characteristics that Mr. Falker and Mrs. Peterson shared helped them be effective teachers.
Students often struggle with the process of developing a plan to organize their writing. This leads to responses that are not well written and often do not address the prompt. Using these pages, you can introduce, model, or guide your students through the process of developing a plan using two column notes. Once they have completed their plans, the process of writing an organized, well-developed response is much easier.
