Trying to teach your students how to add details to their writing but you need a model? Look no further! My second grade students wrote these focused stories and revised them for a publishing party. They wrote about a wide range of topics, and I conferenced with them through the revising process. These models include onomatopoeia, similes,and descriptive details. Use this resource to do mini lessons or have your students identify writing strategies in your centers. Enjoy using this inspiring pieces of writing with your students. Note * This is a preview of my writing file. My other file has 8 more stories in it.
