After years of deciding how to best help my writers, this is what I finally came up with it! It embraces the parts of Common Core and can be used perfectly with Lucy Calkins Units of Writing as well.
The pages include:
3 Types of Sentences (Simple, Compound, Complex)
Transition Words (all 3 types of writing - narrative, opinion, informative)
Leads (6 Kinds - Sound Effect, Flashback, Question, Snapshot, Talking, Action)
Pages come in both color and black and white. Choose to make it how you want. I'd recommend binding if possible for easier use with the kids.
If you want to make a set on cardstock and laminate to use every year, you definitely could!
Print, cut around the tabs and go!
