    How to Story Starters FREEBIE

    Who, What, When, Where and Verb Story Starters! These one word story starters help kiddos start a story and end it with their imagination! I've used them by: Pick a Page Students pick a page in each set to add to their story. Random Page Students have to use a random page from each group to add to a story. Load 'em Up Students try to fit as many of the cards as they can into their story, but making sure that it still makes sense!

    All adults (uppercase letters) and teens (tall lowercase letters) stand downstairs, but are allowed upstairs, too. Babies (lowercase letters) are not tall enough to go upstairs and have to stand downstairs. Then, there are five brave babies that aren't afraid to play in the basement (lowercase letters: g, j, p, q, y).

    Blog post about using writing portfolios in a lower elementary classroom!

    A Year in Review: Writing Portfolios

    This is part of the free editing set from First Grade Wow. For kindergarten, I use it to show what they can do (smiley face in the check box) and what their newest personal challenge is (I highlight the check box). They keep it in their writing folders. It helps differentiate learning and gives each student focus. There are many other useful pages in the packet, too. All free!
