PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These charts are for students’ use in their writing notebooks, but also for teachers! At the beginning of the year, one of the most important things we can do for our students is teach them how to get ideas for their own personal narratives. This will lead to better writing in other genres. More importantly, this will get students excited about writing! I like to focus on these key points at the beginning of the year:
 
Volume, Stamina, & Confidence

This chart is a simple tool students can glue into their notebook as a reminder of ways they can generate ideas for entries, drafts, or stories. Also, teachers can use these as teaching points for mini lessons at the beginning of the year. I would strongly advise teachers to teach students HOW to use this tool & model ways to get ideas, before giving to students. I have included 4 copies:
 
One half-page (so 2 on a page) for students with my examples
One half-page (so 2 on a page) for students with a blank t-chart
One full page with a blank t-chart
One cute colorful one which could be displayed in the writing center or however you choose.
 
By giving students a resource to get ideas, you may be less likely to hear, “I don’t have anything to write about…”
 And when you do, you have a simple response:

“Let’s take a look at some ways writers get ideas…”
 
This chart could also be displayed in the classroom for students in the writing center. I would love to hear how this works for you! I appreciate any feedback
 
Happy Writing!
