Some research indicates that children with expressive/oral language deficits are 4-5 times more likely than peers to have reading & writing problems. One strategy for reading comprehension is connecting text to self; students’ understanding can be enhanced by their understanding of experiences they have had that are similar to those in the story.

This same connection can assist students with writing. There is a strong connection between telling orally and telling in writing;although the former is often less formal. Oral language has a profound impact on reading and writing skills.

This resource provides a structure for moving from writing down personal narration of familiar routines and topics to writing the same structures based on a known story.

Visual cues are presented on the templates, and small versions are provided for you to cut and glue onto students’ papers to maintain consistency of cues.

There are 35 different pages that walk you and students through the process of writing first for personal experiences and then through the same structures for writing about stories.

Visual cues are provided, including a page to print, cut, and paste for all students' writing pages.
