Writer's Workshop: Writing Leads

We spent all of 1st quarter setting up our Writer's Workshop and establishing our roles and expectations. Did you know that our class loves to write!! After publishing our first narrative, we are going back and looking closely into what makes a good piece of writing. We examine other authors and see what they have done that we like!
Our focus this week was writing leads.
The types of leads we looked at were:
  • Flashback
  • Sound effect
  • Snapshot
  • Questions
  • Talking
  • Action
Check out this handout to learn more about each type of lead.
Check out some of our leads! Can you tell which type of lead we choose to use in our lead sentences?
