 ACTIVITY AND DISCUSSION GUIDE

Educator Chris Woods and I co-created a list of ideas to get your planning started! Also, I included editable story map templates for writers of all ages to plan their unique ABC story. 

Click "Make a copy." Then, feel free to alter the document and add your own ideas! You are welcome to make changes, print copies, or republish the guide and story maps for non-commercial use as long as credit is visibly given to Ekuwah Mends Moses and Chris Woods in the footer. For commercial use, please contact me for further details.

I’d love to hear how you imitate and innovate these ideas! If you’re able, please share with me using the hashtag #MyNameIsAnAddress or tag me on social media. I may add your examples to the extension gallery!
