The "start a personal narrative" helping hand is the first hand to a series of eight. This helping hand guides student on how to start a personal narrative in Writing Workshop.
1. Five page booklet
3. Start date
4. Seed topic
5. Planning words
In my classroom, I copy the hand onto construction paper. Each additional hand is then copied onto a different color construction paper and attached to the others. My students love referring to their helping hands while engaging in Writing Workshop.
