Use the anchor chart to help your kids use the star shape to identify the 5 W's (who, what, when, where & why) in the text. They can then use the planning sheet to fill in the 5 W's and create a complete retell on the included publishing page or in their writer's notebook or journals.
Mini-stars are included as notebook helpers- they can glue this inside their notebooks to refer back to throughout the year.
Rubrics for both student & teacher are included so they can ensure their final piece is complete with an intro, the 5 W's, and a conclusion.
This packet addresses the following 3rd Grade Common Core State Standards in Writing:
