Do your students struggle with structure in narrative writing? This resource makes the planning process easy. Each page outlines the key components of a well-structured narrative and gives suggestions for how to begin.
Page 1: Introduction and beginning paragraphs with sentence starter ideas and picture icons for commonly used hooks.
Page 2: Middle paragraph with transition word sentence starters.
Page 3: Ending and conclusion paragraphs with sentence starters and picture icons for commonly used conclusions.
I have included two plans. One for the beginning of the year and one that is more advanced and includes more choices for hooks and conclusions for later in the year.
For the corresponding anchor posters that describe each hook and conclusion in detail consider this resource:
