Fortunately, Unfortunately - 4th Grade

We used the book Fortunately by Remy Charlip for a fun writing activity that we turned into a book. This book tells a story where each page begins with 'fortunately or unfortunately'. My students started their story with the following sentence: "Fortunately, I received a letter that said 'Please come to the _________ party'". Each page told one event in the story. The first page starts with fortunately and students alternated each page after that with fortunately and unfortunately, just like the book. This is great practice for the students to start sentences in different ways.
