My storytelling guides have been such a huge hit that I created one for the December holidays! Yay!
It follows the same format:
Picture Selection: Students will circle a picture (or pictures) from the following categories
Get Set Up! Write a sentence or two describing each selection you made on the previous page.
Then students will have a draft to practice writing in sequences and then have the opportunity to write the whole story start to finish and illustrate it. I prompt my students to draw a picture illustrating the main idea. This helps them practice this skill as well.
