Do your students need some extra support to get through the difficult writing process? My students sure did! I created this student friendly guide to provide a scaffold as you lead your students through the process of writing a narrative, from brainstorming a topic through publishing. This guide was created to be photocopied as a complete packet for each student. Alternatively, you could use each page separately as you teach a mini lesson on specific steps. Included in this guide:
Brainstorming - deciding on a topic
Plan & Organize- determining the content/ideas
What's Your Hook? - developing an interesting lead
Rough Draft- putting your ideas on paper
Author's Craft- improving your writing with figurative language, word choice, etc.
Wrap it Up- writing an effective conclusion
Writing Process- a checklist to make sure you follow the steps in writing a great narrative from start to finish
Edit - tips on making sure your writing is flawless
