This pack of printables with teacher directions and mini-lessons includes everything you need for students to create their very own Seed Notebooks for Writing Workshop. Young writers do not always see their own life as inspiration for writing topics, so these topics or "seeds" must be generated and cultivated in order to bloom into stories. These sheets are intended to be used in the "Generating Ideas" stage of the writing workshop writing cycle. Storytelling sheets also included when students do take a seed idea into a story.
The sheets in this pack build on the heart of special nouns (people, places & things) and topics for young writers; special me, special people, special places, special things and special memories. Mini-lesson focus ideas that accompany sheets are included.
Included in this pack are the following:
*2 Seed Notebook Covers (color & B/W versions)
*2 pages of Table of Contents
*4 pages of Teacher Directions & How-To Use Seed Notebooks
*4 Special Me sheets
*4 Special People sheets
*5 Special Places sheets
