This is a 27 page pdf file that includes a list of resources, two different story maps, a story elements note taking organizer, a peer conferencing form, a long list of strong verbs, speech tags, and character traits, mini-lessons about: character traits, strong verbs, speech tags, characterization, writing a strong lead, transition words, writing a conclusion, writing dialogue, peer conferencing, and a character traits project. In my past experiences, students have loved starting the year out with this writing assignment because it gives them the opportunity to use humor in their writing.
