Giving children a “brochure” to write in is much inviting than a blank sheet of paper.

Directions: Fold a sheet of paper into thirds to create a brochure.
                Or try this easy version: roll paper into a circle and “smush” flat.

Use for: story elements (title, favorite character, beginning, middle, end)
            consonants or vowels (capital, lower case, pictures; long a, short a, aw sound)
            all about me

            field trip, vacation, place they’d like to visit
            unit or theme (K-W-L)
            sorting (pictures, letters, words, syllables)
            fact families
            biography (facts, accomplishments)
            letters with lines, curves, lines and curves
            inflicted endings
            drawing a body
