This If I Were a Principal for a Day Narrative Writing to Sources Project with differentiated options is wonderful for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. This informative writing product is different from others, because your third, fourth and fifth graders will be able to practice note taking as they interview their principal for their source. In addition to that, it will be a memorable way to teach your kids how to create a paper with the use of an interview as their source to enhance their writing. Use this in a whole group, small group, or centers . This easy to use resource, with differentiation suggestions, has the whole writing process and more. This is great in class or online digital resource. Use this with my An Introduction to Informative Writing YouTube video. This resource will simplify writing and make the process easier and more enjoyable for your kids. This can be printed off or uploaded to your favorite digital platform. The QR code is in the resource or you can embed the video so the kids can refer back whenever they need to. This writing process is classroom tested, and will improve your class' informative writing.
This activity includes:
-a 2 page teacher's guide taking you through a 5 day lesson plan
This plan is explicit enough you could leave it for a sub.
-2 versions of an interview page for collecting their "text evidence"
There are leveled versions so you can differentiate in your classroom as kids take notes while the principal is in the room for the interview.
-a pre-writing graphic organizer with space to plan for an introduction, 3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion (complete with transition words)
-2 pages with lines and the prompt
These pages have fun graphics and helpful suggestions to get your kid's thought process going for their paper.
These are useful, ready to go, NON-WORKSHEET resources.
