Importance of stories

Ban the Boring
New persuasive manual
Inspired by @teaandcountryteaching to use visual labels to identify the Seven Steps (or opportunities to use some), informative facts and glow/grow feedback for 3 exemplars for our historical writing HASS assessment.
We looked at three different letters (all different levels) and there were some excellent discussions with lots of critical thinking taking place.
I am blown away by how amazing these @sevenstepswriting sizzling starts are! Moving from year 5 to year 4 this year I wasn’t sure what to expect, however … I am so impressed. Yes we need to work on spelling, grammar and punctuation but I’m so proud of how they have used literary devices and figurative language! I’m so proud of my amazing writers.
It’s a cold, stormy night, and I’m about to catch a mass murderer. It’s not the first time I’ve had to do this, but I hope it’s the last. I’m standing outside his house, gun in hand. I bust down the door, ‘This is the police, get on the ground!’ he doesn’t listen. I watch him climb out of his widow, so I follow quickly after him.
It is the ability to put ourselves in the place of another that makes us truly human. This is why stories are so important.
My socks are sweaty inside my shoes. My toes squirm around inside my socks. It’s almost like I’d just jumped in a puddle, but this puddle was a puddle of sweat. I itch my neck as my shirt scratches along the hairs on my skin. My pants are too big and I don’t like the colour. We have to wear ties that we need to retie every morning. Our jumpers are made of wool, but it means you have to constantly itch and readjust your cuffs. Well, I think the days of scratchy, big and ugly school uniforms are well and truly over. We need to step out of the old days and start to encourage free thinking from students.
‘Here is the brand new musical bicycle’ shouted the shopkeeper. I grinned and stood proudly as the little girl looked at me. I had a big badge that said ‘Must have for Christmas!’ I enjoyed being so popular!
So the writer who breeds more words than he needs is making a chore for the reader who reads.
The ground is shaking, there are landslides forming in the distance and huge waves are arising from the sea water. This is called an earthquake. Did you know the largest earthquake was located in Southern Chile. It had a magnitude of 9.5 and occurred on May 22 1960.
Interested about Faith, the cat who protected her baby kitten after a nuke dropped? Or the cat that used a sandpit in the circus as a giant litter box? I have the book for you then, with humour, funny stories and the timeline of cats! Check out Rebel Cats: Brave Stories for Feisty Felines.
Uniforms do not mean better grades!
Are you tired of feeling ununique, or feeling too common? Well all of those problems would be solved if school uniforms were banned! People in school wouldn’t feel uncomfortable bodywise and this way, people have no limit with self expression!
Sizzling Starts – opening up my students’ eyes to the exciting ways we can make Persuasive Writing interesting! Loving using the brand new 2.0 Persuasive Writing Manual from @sevenstepswriting.
Frequently asked questions
What is the Seven Steps Tool Kit?
The Seven Steps Tool Kit is designed to equip you and your school with the key tools and resources for implementing what you’ve learnt from your Seven Steps Workshop. Key theory and Top Techniques, along with the classic Action Activities, are all initiators to get you thinking about what’s possible in a Seven Steps classroom. Think of it as a getting started kit unlike any other.
The Tool Kit for Primary Schools includes all five of the Seven Steps writing manuals – Narrative, Persuasive (new edition), Informative, Early Years and Writing Essentials.
The Tool Kit – Standard contains all of the above except the Early Years Writing Manual. However, even for older year levels, the Early Years manual can be used for students who need the extra support.

How is Teacher Hub different from the Seven Steps Tool Kit and manuals?
While Teacher Hub contains everything you and your school needs to unlock the power of the Seven Steps, our Tool Kits and writing manuals offer another option for teachers who prefer printed resources.
One of the most important things when implementing change in a school is to make it simple for each and every teacher. The manuals offer a way for those who prefer to quickly find resources, activities and lessons from a hard-copy book or binder. However, these resources are specifically designed to supplement the Seven Steps training or theory videos, rather than providing further development for teachers.
We’re also dedicated to providing valuable content to our members. As an online platform, Teacher Hub allows us more flexibility in providing great content and staying up to date. As we continue to try, test and discover what resources teachers like, we will continue to develop more and more of those resources for Seven Steps Teacher Hub.
What is your refund policy?
It is important to us that you are delighted with your Seven Steps purchase! We therefore offer a money-back guarantee on almost all products and services.
If you’re not happy with your Seven Steps product, please email or call us within 30 days of purchase. If we are unable to resolve the issue or further assist you, we will process a refund upon timely receipt of the unopened products. Refunds will be processed promptly and payment made by the same method that you used to make the order.
All refunds are made in accordance with the Australian Consumer Protection Act and at the discretion of Seven Steps to Writing Success. Our full terms and conditions can be found here.
How long until I receive my order?
Expected standard delivery across Australia is within three weeks from the date of order. Express delivery is usually within one week from the date of order, particularly if you are in or close to a capital city.
Sometimes we find the resources have been delivered but they’re held up in your school’s main office, so you may want to check there to be sure they haven’t already arrived!
If your order still hasn’t been delivered after three weeks, please give our office a call on (03) 9521 8439 so we can figure out what’s gone wrong.
Do you offer special prices for CRTs?
We know CRTs often have to pay for their own teaching resources, without any support from schools. So we like to try to help where we can. Contact our office on (03) 9521 8439 or email [email protected] and we can chat!
