This pack is to help motivate your writers. The prompts can be used by having a discussion about what the topic is, brainstorm possible setting, plot and character if it is a narrative. When doing a recount make sure there is a clear beginning, middle and end that shows sequenced events.
The planning picture is for a ‘quick draw’. Do this in writing pencil and outline only of what the story is about. Then write the story. There are spare writing pages at the back if the writer needs more space.
Conferencing - After writing, read back and revise, edit and share for feedback by completing the checklist together.
When these steps are done the add color to the planning picture and the clip art picture.
