PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this packet, you will find tools to help you teach your students the difference in "big watermelon ideas" and "tiny, seed stories" for narrative writing. This is very helpful in teaching students how to choose an idea for narrative, small moment pieces and aligns with Lucy Calkins' Writer's Workshop units.

Included you will find:
*2 posters - one that reminds students the difference between seed and watermelon stories and one that gives examples of each
*Graphic organizer - this shows students how to pull seed topics from larger, watermelon ideas
*Sorting activity - students will sort ideas into watermelon and seed topics. This provides a great, quick assessment for you to be sure they understand the concept before moving on to draft their own seed stories. Answer key included.

Please download preview to see all items included. Single classroom use only.
