30 printable pages for students to write a story. Each lesson is centered on an animated image, giving your students a chance to tell a story of their dog taking a bath, biting a dog-catcher, running a race, playing with a Frisbee, playing basketball, giving their little sister a ride, riding in an airplane, chasing a kite, scratching at an itchy flea, and digging a hole in the neighbor’s yard. A pre-writing brainstorming page is provided for each lesson for characters, setting and events. Four posters guide your students in each lesson so that they practice their grade-level Common Core Standards:
- describe the actions, thought and feelings of characters (CCSS.ELA.W.2.3).
- use temporal words and transitional words or phrases to signal event order (CCSS.ELA.W.2.3 and 3.3c and 4.3c and 5.3c).
- use dialogue (CCSS.ELA.W.3.3b and 4.3b and 5.3b).
- provide a sense of closure (CCSS.ELA.W.3.3d and 4.3e and 5.3e).
