This anchor chart gives all the different types of hooks, leads, and grabbers that you can use in a writing piece. B using these tips, you will be able to "grab" the reader's attention, "hook" their interest, and "lead" into an amazing piece of writing. This is a way to give an alternative to "start with an anecdote."
Types of Leads discussed:
* sensory language
* interesting facts
This is an entirely original product made for my current group of 3rd graders. This anchor chart is used after we discuss using hooks/grabbers/leads in our writing. I give a copy of this to each child to put in their writing journals and usually shrink it to 85% so that it’s small enough to fit in a composition book.
