What educators are saying

My students really enjoyed this activity. I used it to introduce essay writing. The organizer and template provided the right amount of scaffolding so that all of my students were successful.


Favorite Places includes digital and printable resources to help teachers guide their students through the process of writing a simple 5-paragraph expository or informative essay. Two writing activities are included. The first asks students to choose 3 of their favorite places to visit and explain why they like those places. The second asks students to write about 3 places they dream of visiting one day. Detailed step-by-step lesson plans and ready-to-use activity pages are included for both activities. Printable versions of the student pages are provided as well as Google Slides versions of them. Click the preview link above to preview the entire Favorite Places Teacher's Guide and all printable resources. Please be aware that the links to the Google Slides resources in the preview version have been deactivated, but they do work in the paid product.

The lesson plan used to teach expository writing in Favorite Places is similar to the process described in my Thankful Writing lesson. If you've used that lesson and your students enjoyed the writing process described in that resource, they will love writing about their favorite places!
