PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Please visit my daily blog, The Clutter-Free Classroom (www.CFClassroom.com) for daily tips and ideas for organizing and managing your classroom.

This product is a bundle of my EIGHT thematic writing packets for the months of February and March. The individual packets sell for $3.75 each. Purchasing this bundle saves you well over 50%. Not too shabby ;)

This will make planning your writing much easier. Each of the packets follows the same format which allows your students to write in a manner that they become comfortable with. Each was created to make your job as a teacher much easier. The packets contain a variety of pages that are differentiated for learners in grades K-5. I designed them to be open-ended so you may use them with whichever prompt you choose. Each contains 2 full-page printables to use as a bulletin board titles or as covers to class books.

Be sure to check out my blog to see how I am using them in my classroom.

Included in the kit are 8 thematic writing packets.

Each packet includes:
-a page to brainstorm ideas

-top down webs to help organize the writing for a simple paragraph, a detailed paragraph, and multi-paragraph writing

-a traditional web with spokes for brainstorming / planning writing

-primary and intermediate ruled draft paper (with space for teacher edits)

-primary and intermediate ruled final copy writing paper

-2 writing / illustrating pages (primary and intermediate ruled writing pages with a space to illustrate the writing)

2 color printables

THE FOLLOWING THEMES ARE INCLUDED (links will take you to their individual product page on TpT to show specific images)
