PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FREE!! Perfect for advanced middle school students and students grades 9-12. Aligns with CCSS Writing Standards.

This activity and memoir is a favorite of my students because it lets them reminisce about stories from their childhoods. I always have students trying re-outlive other students:)

Included is a one-page Brainstorming Activity that segues into a larger memoir.

Here are the directions which are included on the hand out:
STEP ONE: On a large sheet of butcher paper draw or sketch the neighborhood you have the most memories in. This could be where you currently live, where you used to live, or even your grandparents' home! The neighborhood could be your whole town or even just your block or even just your backyard! STEP TWO: Next, label and number EXACT stories you can recall. By exact, this means “The time you fell through the ice, while playing on your frozen pond” and NOT “fishing and playing at the pond.” The latter is TOO general! STEP THREE: Freewrite on up to 5 of your stories. Be sure to put the corresponding number from your drawing.
