Bold Beginnings! Teaching Students How to Write a Hook

Wednesday, 15 January 2014



I'm sure that most of you reading this blog are teachers of primary aged students. I am even more certain that you have little writers who start their writing the same way ALL the time!

"One day" or "I went to..." or "Once upon a time"....bangs head on desk.

It can be tricky to get these little writers to add some variety to their writing. Beginnings can be particularly hard.

I created this interactive notebook activity to help my students practice writing hooks (Bold Beginnings).



They glued the activity into their writer's notebook and had a blast creating beginnings! They actually asked to do it a second time with a new topic.

You can pick this activity up by clicking here or any of the above images.

It also comes with interactive notebook pages for Mighty Middles and Excellent Endings!
