Our kindergarten class used the simplified narrative diamond to draw the beginning, middle, and end for the book Pumpkin Town.
Starting to teach and model story pattern at a young age is essential to the students’ success in their own writing later on. Through your read aloud books, explain and show how authors create a story pattern that holds all the pieces of the story inside. Look at these kinder samples! I love how this lesson differentiates itself for students at all levels in your class!
