*Bold Beginnings Posters- Including the definition and examples of each type of way to hook the reader
*Bold Beginnings Foldable
*Beginnings Sort Foldable- Students can sort which example beginning belongs to which hook strategy
*Writing a Lead Foldable- A foldable for students to brainstorm their characters, setting, and type of bold beginning
*Bold Beginning Task Cards- 16 task cards having students create a bold beginning to make a boring beginning better
*Good Authors Hook the Reader- A recording sheet for students to write down when they notice a good lead in a book they are reading and then try the strategy for themselves.
*Switch it Up!- Students are given a picture and asked to create six different bold beginnings from it
*Revising to Hook the Reader Center- Where students can revise their own work for the lead
