Instructional Ideas

  • Conduct and showcase this writing activity around Back to School Night or Open House as a writing example for families to read while visiting the classroom 
  • Invite learners to share their events or celebrations with the class as a prewriting session to inspire writers and aid those that have a difficult time finding a story topic 
Classroom Considerations

  • Scholars should be familiar with the narrative writing process
  • One page may not be enough for writers with large print or who have a lot to tell; attach additional sheets of paper so writers can share all their ideas
Pros

  • The prompt is specific, yet gives pupils freedom to write creatively 
Cons

  • The lines provided for writing are close together which may be a challenge for some writers
