Where did summer go? I know, it's hard to believe that summer is winding down already. It seems that we were just getting out of summer school. I have one week until the first day of school and I can feel it coming fast!
When students get back to school they are full of stories and all the new adventures they had over the summertime. A friend interview is a fun way to get students back into the groove of writing plus allow them to tell about themselves!
An important skill in writing, but a difficult transition for some, is to be able to go from asking questions to using the information gained from the questions into statements that build into a paragraph. A way to practice this is with the friend interview in a writer's workshop model.
This packet is aligned to the common core & contains pre-made questions for a back to school or anytime interview. I have also included 4 sets of interview question sheets for differentiating from grades 1-3
2 types of rough draft paper
2 types of final draft paper
1 illustration page
3 alternative covers
Once the interviews are completed, bind the interviews together and make a class book-3 different covers are included. It is sure to become one of the favorite books in your class!!
