PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Interactive Writer's Notebooks: *Top Seller* practical, easy to use and fun for students! These are skill based notebook printables that also align with the traits of good writing! Detailed lessons and your choice of authors and books to supplement make it the best choice for your writing program!

This unit is VERY detailed and includes many of the CCSS for Writing, Listening and Speaking and Language. Each learning outcome is identified as a focus with supporting outcomes listed as well. The CCSS is taught in a fun way by combining the curricular outcomes that need to be taught with the Writing Traits using children's literature that YOU choose to use.

Not teaching CCSS? No problem. These lessons will be a great fit for your Writing Workshop.

These lessons are very flexible in terms of how you choose to group your children. They can be done individually, in partners and there is even a lesson with whole class input.

If you would like to use these lessons again as a follow up in a literacy or Daily 5 center, this works perfectly.

The Traits include:

ideas
word choice
sentence fluency
voice,
organization


CCSS:
W 2.1,
W 2.2,
W 2.3
SL 2.1
SL 2.1a,
SL 2.1c
L 2.1 e
L 2.1f

Check out the preview for more.

This unit is USA and Canada friendly as I have included 2 pages with the word color spelled colour but I did not include this in the page count.

On  October 13, 2013Debbie Krueger (TpT Seller) said:
There are lots of great and useful ideas in the package. I especially like the activities that are for creative writing rather than the ones that are grammatical, which are widely available with many more practise sheets. I like that you included a few book suggestions for some activities. My favourite activity is the character description one. The kids love it as well.
On  October 14, 2013TheWriteStuff answered:
Thanks Debbie,
Yes! This is a writer's notebook not a language skills notebook. :) I'm so glad you like it! I'm surprised, given your comments, that you marked this product low when you clearly liked it. I can't say I really understand your numerical assessment of this product.

Thank you for this!
I have been on a writer's workshop kick for the last month or so with my kiddos and the LOVE it, but I felt it wasn't as "linear" with Write Traits as it could be... this will be amazing, and I love the interactive workbook format! Thanks!
On  December 7, 2013TheWriteStuff answered:
Thanks so much! I need to have something more linear too when I teach so that the learning can scaffold. I blog about the notebook and other writing lessons on Sundays at www.theperksofteachingprimary.blogspot.ca

There is some good ideas in this packet, but it definitely leans toward 2nd grade. I will have to do some adjusting for 3rd grade. Also, a little overpriced given the contents. I have paid that amount for almost 100 pages of resources.
On  September 22, 2013TheWriteStuff answered:
Hi Megbauer,

The learning outcomes were based on the CCSS for 2nd grade as indicated in the product description although many of the outcomes are also part of the 3rd grade learning outcomes as well which is why it can be used in both grades. (I had a comment elsewhere stating the teacher thought she could use this with grades 3-5.) Most of my resources are in depth and not full of pictures or pages with cut out cards that take up a whole page. So, when you are purchasing a product that has 50 pages, it is 50 pages of useful work for your classroom. I only charge based on the useful content. If my products contain classroom pictures or pages that are duplicates and the page number is higher, I still price based on the useful content. I hope this helps.
