Product Description
Do your students have a hard time beginning their writing? Do they begin every piece of writing the same exact way? This product includes 20 popular ways that student's can enhance the beginnings of their writing! Each chart states the name of the "hook" and gives examples to help students produce their own!

These charts come small enough to fit into student notebooks for easy reference. They save space only taking up 2.5 pages of the writing journal if all 20 are used! They also come in the standard paper size to hang onto your wall or to make a classroom reference book! Blank charts are included to create additional hooks or student-made examples!

Update: This product now includes a full-page for students to write hooks found within mentor texts- fits perfectly into journals!

Please look at the preview to see all examples of the writing hooks! These will definitely bring about independence in your students as they take control of their exciting paragraph starters!
