⭐ What a perfect find! I was searching for something to support narrative writing in Journeys. This is perfect. The included student samples helped my kiddos see exemplar papers and know what was expected of them to score well. I loved the suggested read alouds and all the included writing maps. Well Done!

⭐ This is a great way to teach narrative writing. The lessons are not too long and are super flexible to fit my schedule. Thank you!

⭐ I've been biting my nails about writing. The writing component of our district Language Arts program just doesn't work for me. I'm so excited about this product! I absolutely love that you included student work samples. Thank you!
