Text Structures From Nursery Rhymes - 9781506387963
A Revolutionary Strategy for Teaching Writing to ChildrenHow can we shape young students, often just learning how to hold a pencil, into capable writers? This groundbreaking book offers the solution: a clear framework for guiding children to write in any style, from narrative to persuasive.The key lies in using familiar text structures to break down a story into its main components, immediately thrusting students into the role of the writer. Included are 53 lessons, each centered around a classic nursery rhyme, and all the tools you'll need to lead your students in crafting their own story - in words, pictures, or both. Discover how text structures, already a success in later grades, can also have a profound impact on younger students' progress.
