This pack includes both Story Leads and Story Endings
with explanation cards and booklists.
Hooking your audience from the beginning is very important when writing a story. How the writer ends the story is as equally as important. This pack includes a variety of story leads and endings authors use when writing. You and your students can explore various texts during reading workshop or writing workshop. Your students can experiment and apply the choices to their own writing. Glue the picture cards to popsicle sticks and have your class determine the type of lead or ending used in books read to them or written by them. Students hold up the stick with the lead/ending card and explain their thinking!
Booklists will assist you (the teacher) in your minilessons and save you the time used searching for appropriate books.
