Stuff to catch in your writer's notebook - vocabulary words, writing definitions, dead word replacements, spelling list, etc. cute idea to give them a writing bingo of topics to choose from in their notebook

Transition words for narrative writing are different than those used for expository writing. I would do a mini lesson on narrative transition words, and I would have students keep this in their writing folders as a reference source.
