In this resource, you will find an ORGANIZED, step by step process for teaching little kids how to write a story book. Colorful posters give students VISUAL clues for how to organize their thoughts. Also, posters for gaining understanding of 4 W words guide children to write interesting and flowing stories. The W words included are WHO, WHAT, WHEN, and WHERE. A fun poster that encourages children to be a writer is included. Two levels of storybook paper is included.
BEFORE BEGINNING STORYBOOK WRITING, STUDENTS MUST HAVE SOME FOUNDATIONAL LEARNING IN INVENTIVE SPELLING, LABELING, AND BASIC SENTENCE STRUCTURE. IF THEY DO NOT HAVE THIS FOUNDATIONAL LEARNING, THEY WILL STRUGGLE WITH THIS ACTIVITY.
