This download includes five days of fun, holiday narrative writing instruction for kindergarten - 2nd grade. Your writers will begin to write creatively as they branch off from well-known stories. Your students will utilize a green-yellow-red template to illustrate and write their own stories based on the holiday book "Rudolph Shines Again" by Robert L. May.
The examples in this packet are based off the book above, however, you can easily use any story book you choose.
This narrative writing packet teaches students how to re-tell a narrative story while working with a timeline.
These writing lessons will also teach your students to include an additional middle section to their stories. In our previous weekly writing lessons we have only had students write about one middle event. This writing packet will allow your students to include a second middle event.
Also, during this weeks lessons your students will be encouraged to include character dialogue by including speech balloons. Suggesting that your students add how the main character felt in the story is a great way to pull the reader into the story.
This writing download includes all the instructions and templates you will need to conduct these workshops.
