PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Improved my students writing so much! Thank you for this wonderful resource!”

Instead of doing several Narratives, I like to focus on just one and help students make it better and better through multiple drafts that add new skills each time. This makes writing personal narratives with descriptive detail and clear event sequences easier to manage for you and your students.

These "Ready To Print" student pages meet EIGHT of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) for Grade 5 Writing & Language! This Writing Resource also incorporates Reading Literature CCSS although those are not specifically assessed.

Students will use the included Step-by-Step Companion Packet to guide them through the entire writing process. Students focus on just three “Must-Have’s” for each draft—not tackling everything all at once. This allows them to be successful a little bit at a time while constructing a narrative that is top-notch by the end of Draft Three. Each new draft has Preparation Pages that prepare the students to focus on the new Must-Have’s.

Students will also use draft-by-draft color-coding of text for at-a-glance teacher grading. Three easy circles on the included check-in forms will allow you to give feedback following each draft without making all of the corrections yourself! (Note: Students will need access to pink, green, and yellow highlighters for this!)

In addition to the three post-draft check-in sheets, I have included a student self-evaluation and teacher rubric for formal assessment.

This resource will compliment a variety of tried and true narrative writing projects including an Oops Story, Seed Story, Slice of Life Story, and more!

Thank your for your interest and I hope you enjoy this product from Project Hallway!
:-) Bethany
