We use this tactile reminder to help our students remember to write all that should be included in a great piece of personal narrative writing! Display and use on an interactive white board system, put into student writing folders, or send home to remind students to remember to write all that should be included in a great piece of writing.
We use the Lucy Calkins Units of Study as our writing curriculum and have found that our students really benefit from the extra tactile support of the Remember to Write hand. We simply add the introduction of this support during our personal narrative units. Choose to introduce along with Lucy’s personal narrative checklist, or a few lessons before or after, or in place of – whatever works for you and your students!
Included in this packet you will find a poster-sized hand to display whole group as well as a smaller size for a student reminder to keep in writing folders/notebooks or to send home. A checklist version (both large and small) is also included so teacher and/or student can monitor the writing process.
