This writing project is designed to fit your class and grade.
I use this project after reading the books in the “Scaredy Squirrel” series by Melanie Watt.
Pages 3-12 in the package show an example/teacher’s guide of how you could use this book for students to write their own version of the stories. I let my students choose any topic, in this example I chose going to school. I have had kids write about getting a haircut, going swimming, doing gymnastics, and even snorkeling with sharks.
Simply choose the pages you want in your students’ books, photocopy them, and start writing! I usually do 1-2 pages per day after we have read one of the stories so the students really have time to develop illustrations.
When they are finished, cut out the pages and staple at the side. You have created your own “Scaredy Squirrel” story!
Includes each template with both single lined and interlined options. There are also other writing pages to customize your students’ writing projects to be whatever you want them to be!
