Beginning, Middle, End: Starting Foundational Skills in Kindergarten

Kylene Reed
September 30, 2019

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!
