What educators are saying

My students enjoyed using this narrative flip book. It made writing narratives easy, allowing students to refresh their knowledge and compile it in one place for easy reference.
I am using this as a supplement for my Power of the Pen writers (a creative writing competition in Ohio). It's great to have concrete, specific strategies at their fingertips. Thank you!

Need help teaching your next narrative writing assignment? Do your kids need review, and/or need the tricks to take their writing to the next level?

This dense flip book of eight mini-lessons will elicit stronger drafts from your writers to get visible growth, AND they get a keepsake reference tool that they can keep forever!

Once you give them a prompt or assignment of your choice, this booklet will take writers through the whole writing process of brainstorming to revising, with thought-provoking questions in between to help them know what to add or edit.

Use the booklet in any of these ways:
• As a gift for students to use independently
• As a structured set of 8 mini-lessons that you can teach in 8 days or fewer
• As a differentiation tool, only doing direct instruction on the flaps that are needed

The eight tabs are: planning, the beginning, dialogue, figurative language, sensory details, indirect vs. direct characterization, the ending, editing & revising, and a BONUS review tab with a glossary and self-assessment questions.

Each tab includes:
The Basics: Typical information taught for that subject, great for students who are new to the topic OR need review.
Expert Level: Advanced information on the topic to help stretch those who are ready and apply the information to their current draft of writing.
Next: A grey box will scaffold students to an action step, usually writing something in the blank flap above that can be copied into their draft later. (This is a great formative assessment checkpoint, like an informal exit ticket built into each flap!)
Formatting: Clear tables, checklists, and mentor sentences

Assembly is quick and easy – you only need scissors, a stapler, and five minutes! The booklet given to you in BOTH a print-and-go PDF, as well as an EDITABLE version that you can modify if needed! When done, tuck it into a binder/folder, or hole-punch it to fit perfectly into binder rings. :)
