Write short pattern stories with grades 3 to 5! (Fortunately & Unfortunately...)
For September, make the focus fun 'Fortunately and Unfortunately we're back in school...' pattern stories!
('Unfortunately we have to get up early again... Fortunately we get to see our friends every day!')
This activity uses two picture books as a springboard to writing and illustrating short ‘fortunately and unfortunately’ pattern stories.
(It can also be used without the picture books - they are optional.)
Although I labeled it 'grades 3 to 5', I actually use this activity successfully with grades 3 to 7. There are 3 story frame options so there are options for adapting to grade levels, purpose, and individual student needs / abilities.
If you are looking for a 'Back to School' resource for grades 5 to 7, perhaps take a look at my 'About Me' for Big Kids item. It has several 'back to school' theme writing activities. Look at it here!
Thank you for stopping by my new TPT store, Once Upon a Lesson! Best wishes for a great new school year!
