So far so good! We are doing a rough draft and then we will do our final draft this week! Since we are doing Desert Animals, I switched the jungle graphics for desert graphics, but I appreciate taking our 1st and 2nd grade students through this process "step by step" Thank you!
Thanks. My original product only included the description of the task and the grading sheet. I added the writing pages for younger writers (as opposed to them organizing it themselves on loose leaf paper). I'm sorry you were looking for primary lines. I used these lines with my 2nd graders, but I could easily make some primary lines to send to you! If you go to "ask a question" and send me your email address, I can do it later today.
**I just added primary lines and revised the product. You should be able to re-download. Thanks again for your purchase!
We are a pair of primary teachers with a wide range of experience! Between the two of us, we have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades! We have experience with general education, special education, ELL, and more!
