Great Endings

When writing personal narratives my students would often write what my colleagues and I have referred to as the "diving off the cliff" ending. You know the ones...."And then I went home and went to bed," "Then I ate breakfast," 'Then we went home." This chart is used during an endings lesson to instruct students to climb back down the mountain and wrap their stories up with a feeling statement (at the first grade level) or perhaps a circular ending (in the upper grades).
