Product Description
This activity can be used with grades 3 and up. Maybe even second grade!
I purchased packs of blank notebooks from Amazon, and plan on letting my students create a book about their memories from this year. Pinterest and Google also provide instructions on how to DIY blank booklets. I was nervous that the books would not turn out as meaningful as I hoped, so I created this product.

The product has 3 parts.
One part for brainstorming: Which includes graphic organizers for the student to think more in depth about their goals, friends, and events from this year. It also has a theme, character, and summary organizer.

The next part is for planning: The planning section is based off of plot mountain. Each component of "plot mountain" has two pages dedicated to it. (Introduction, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution). Part A of each component is made up of questions that will guide the student toward properly writing their narrative. Part B includes a graphic organizer that helps keep their responses in an orderly manner. As the student goes through each component of the plot, there is a small diagram at the top letting them know which part of the story they are at. The part is circled on a small plot mountain.

Last, is the drafting part: The drafting part is made up of pages that show how the book's layout should look. There are lines for the 2-3 sentences per page, and there are boxes to sketch their illustrations. I numbered each of the "pages" so that the students would not be confused when they transferred their story to their book. The pages are organized again by the 5 plot components on a plot mountain. The pages dedicated to each are labeled with the same small diagram in the corner of each page. There are guide questions/statements above each practice page to help the student stay on track with their story. The questions correlate with their planning pages.

I am using this for the end of the year, however, I have worded it so that it can be used anytime as long as it is AFTER the school year has started. It is goal-oriented and will connect the student personally to their work while still engaging them in CCSS. The engagement will be inversed, which will show thorough understanding!
