Writing and illustrating Chart

Summer is nearly over! Yikes...where did it go so fast!!!  I was looking over my To-Do list and knew it was time to get some of these projects done.  I had been wanting to create a writing and illustrating chart for awhile.  When my students tell me they are done...my famous last words are always- Did you use your whole canvas?
They know this means-
Did they use all the lines? If not, then stretch that story out!
Did they color in all the white space?
The only white should be something meant to be white, like clouds or snow.

I knew I was going to have to create my own because it was really important to me that the paper was the same paper that we use in the classroom.  I left the picture black and white, so I could hand color the examples.  I wanted it to be really authentic, and for them to know exactly what I'm looking for.

If you are interested in this chart. You can find it at my Teachers Pay Teachers store for $2.00.  Click here to head on over to my store.

Here's how it turned out:
