Nonfiction Sports Story With Expository Writing Activity

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
I wrote this nonfiction story about Josh Pastner, former coach of the University of Memphis Tiger Basketball Team, after hearing him talk at a dinner. His motivational story is quite impressive and provides a great model for kids. I have also provided directions for kids to write an essay about what they read in the story. Nonfiction writing is high on the common core expectations, and this activity is perfect for providing high interest curriculum and current events.



Help! I’ve Misplaced My Modifier. Humorous Story to Explain Misplaced Modifiers

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This humorous story helps students to learn about misplaced modifiers. Students are given the task of finding the misplaced modifiers in this story about a child's birthday party. Answer key included.



Electromagnetic Energy Story (Creative Writing Activity about Science)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This creative story shows the path of electricity from a neutron’s point of view. Students are asked to write their own stories that relate to a scientific topic.



The World’s Most Loyal Dog: A Nonfiction Story With Questions

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
I wrote this story about Hachiko, the amazing Japanese dog who spent about a decade waiting at a train station for his master who had died. This story comes complete with vocabulary and comprehension questions.



Bloody Bad Life

For an interesting close reading passage, here's a print and go activity package from Catch My Products. Students will be challenged and engaged as they read this original passage about A Bloody Bad Life in Ross Castle of Killarney, Ireland. This second person passage, packed with common core standards, walks students through the castle as if they were the peasants living an unsanitary life. Good topic for St. Patrick's Day, too.

It’s the late 1400s and you’re a peasant living in Ross Castle along the beautiful shores of Killarney, Ireland. I wrote this story after touring Ross castle in Ireland.



Beware of Cooties

Here’s a bonus story that I haven’t even put up for sale on TPT. I fear it will never find a home due to its shocking ending, but none-the-less, it’s one of my favorites that must be shared. If you dare to share it with the kids, I promise they’ll get a laugh. Enjoy!
