PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

UPDATED 4-4-16! The covers are current to reflect the 2015-2016 school year.

This end of the school year writing activity has students write about their top five memories from the previous year. Students have a unique audience though; they are writing to themselves in ten years. This bundle includes:

* A list of common core standards addressed in the lesson.
* A lesson plan that walks you through the process.
* A 'writing process' sheet.
* An assignment sheet for students (editable).
* FIVE cover sheets for students' final drafts.
* NINE notebook pages for final drafts - three themes (pencil, retro, polka dot).
* A back cover sheet.
* Two possible brainstorming sheets - use which works best for your class.
* A grading rubric.
* A student-led editing sheet (page one is shown in the preview).

This assignment is a wonderful way to review the writing process, and it has tools to address the process. I use this to wrap up the end of the year because narratives are a fun way to reflect and share.

If you plan to teach several narratives throughout the year, you may be interested in my Narrative Bundle which also includes an introductory power point. This bundle has tons of writing activities to keep your kids focused in the classroom around holidays!

This purchase includes everything I use when teaching the lesson. You should be able to print and teach - no prep for the end of the school year.
