Next, I have students complete the following foldable that allows the students to record Narrative stories that they have previously(or even WISH) to write about. This gives you much needed insight about a student's prior experiences AND topics that they enjoy.
Here is what the finished product looks like!
Under the flaps, students record the elements for each genre.
This is a great way to introduce writing in the beginning of the school year!
Need individual units that cover each genre? Links to the units that I use are shown below.
Here they are, all BUNDLED up! You get THREE units for the price of TWO!!!
