This YouTube video shows the pages in the printable for students to plan and write a mystery.
The class or homeschool writing center could be set up with folded paper envelope slots for the different ISN’s (interactive student notebook pages).
After time has been provided during writer’s workshop for a few days, then the bulletin board display could be changed by removing the work pages and placing only the rubric. This sends a silent message to students to wrap things up for writing conferences with the teacher.
Characters are to be named and also described as part of the pre-writing activities. More reluctant writers would be encouraged by the pictures and probably be able to think of clever names for them. More independent writers might want to make their own ISN page.
The setting foldable pages for student notebooks would be used in a similar way. More reluctant writers or those inspired by art might like to use the ideas provided for scenes in their stories. More independent writers would like to create their own ISN with settings they draw or name. There is a page for clues, sequencing, the story cover, writing page, and the rubrics.
