Students are given a picture word list on each writing mat with related clip art to match the story starter and topic. There is a space to draw a picture with each story as well and the word list provides support in drawing.
There is a writing checklist at the bottom of each mat to help students remember what they need to include in their writing passage. They can review the items before writing, refer to it during, and color in the check marks after to show they have used the writing conventions.
