This product is ideal for teaching students how to write about small moments in their lives. Often, when students are asked to write a story, they will write about a big "watermelon" experience. This resource will help them narrow down their ideas to smaller "seed" experiences. This resource includes:
*2 watermelon/seed idea posters showing students how to get seed "smaller" ideas from the watermelon "bigger" idea (in color) (these are examples)
*blank watermelon/seed poster like the one listed above (color)
*3 black and white watermelon/seed planning papers that match the above paper for students (one has 6 seeds, one has 4 seeds, and one has 3 seeds to accommodate the size of student's handwriting)
*worksheet to help students write 3 details about each seed idea to prepare them to write a personal narrative
*6 different types of writing paper for students - some have clip art and others are plain, so you can chose what works for you
