Once students have done their brainstorming, they can use this writing template to keep their ideas in order as they follow the indented paragraphs. Because it is a writing draft, I decreased the size of the illustration section and I tell my students to finish writing on the template first and do the illustration at the very end so they write what they want to say while it's still fresh in their minds.They use their own writing paper to submit their final work.
