Narrative writing is a difficult process for many students. I developed this Planning Organizer a few years ago and have used it with my third graders ever since. Writer’s block happens often when kids are staring at a blank piece of composition paper, but when they are given the structure with which to write, the “creative juices” can flow once again. It is amazing how much more focused and organized their writing is!
It’s free of busy distractions, like clip art and hard-to-read fonts. Students with special needs are not the only ones who benefit from a clutter-free paper, and you will be pleasantly surprised at the improvement in your students’ writing!
