Our Camping Stories by Teacher Chalk Talk, is a great way to incorporate beginning writing practice in your classroom. This packet, geared for beginning writers, provides visual cues for discussing the story elements character, setting, and events in literature and in student writing. Review story elements and use blackline masters, with story starter ideas centered around a camping theme, to encourage students to share oral story ideas and then write their stories for inclusion in class books about camping and fishing. This pack includes a variety of black and white story starter camping sheets; color class book covers for stories about camping and fishing; color character, setting and event guide pages; and blank story title pages and event pages for personized stories. This is a great back to school activity for beginning writers.
