Use the mentor text Pictures from our Vacation by Lynne Rae Perkins as a great introduction to narrative writing and personal narratives. This book follows a family on a unique summer vacation. The imperfect photos still tell the stories of their memories.
This would make a great back to school write or a supplement to the Lucy Calkins CCSS Units of Writing.
Included are 2 projects:
- One involving memories and pictures from the students' summer vacations
- One involving memories and small moments from places around school. The idea is to take or draw an imperfect picture just like the story shows
There is an option to do the second project on technology using iPads to take the pictures and voice recording to tell the small moment story.
Included are: Lesson plans, comprehension check, drafting sheets, revising sheet, editing sheet, variety of options for publishing
