Product Description
This is one of the first lessons I use when I introduce the personal narrative genre of writing.

This packet includes:
- two posters explaining the difference between a watermelon story and a seed story

- a 2-sided worksheet with 20 items where students read a topic idea, and they must determine whether the story idea would produce a watermelon story or a seed story

- a sorting activity with 15 story ideas; students determine whether the story idea would produce a watermelon story or a seed story

- a graphic organizer

- a watermelon anchor chart idea

- a narrative explanation of how I use these materials

Check out the preview!
