When I moved to Wisconsin in 2012 to teach 2nd grade, I taught my first Small Moment unit of study. I used the popular watermelon analogy to explain the difference between the big topic, smaller topic, and a small moment. To the left is a picture of the poster I used to define and give an example of each one.
But unfortunately, some of my students still were not writing small moment stories with tiny details stretched out across several pages.
So I said to myself, "I gotta find another mentor text with more examples."
"Well here it is. Your My lucky day small moment strategy sticky note template is waiting for you! Download this sticky note template now!"
