PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This daily, scaffolded approach to paragraph writing is perfect to help get your students writing good, solid, detailed paragraphs. Students will write one paragraph weekly, focusing on the organization and format of the paragraph itself.

There are 36 weeks worth of writing prompts in this 200+ page file. All of the prompts are student-centered so that they will not get bogged down on the topic but rather focus on writing the paragraph itself. The first 18 weeks are heavily scaffolded, resulting in a nice, solid paragraph. The second 18 weeks switch focus to revising and editing, since the students are now more proficient at writing the actual paragraph.

There are samples of completed paragraphs, a rubric (in two sizes for you to choose), a revising checklist, and even final draft paper for you to use. There are also blank templates for you to create your own writing prompts to better suit the needs of your students.

This is designed as homework (that is how I use it in my room) however you can also use it as classwork in a center or writing warm up.

This is for use by one teacher in one classroom. If you would like to share with your colleagues, PLEASE purchase a multiple license. This really was a lot of work for me and I would appreciate it.

Wow! What a jam-packed QUALITY resource! There's so much that I love about it. The instructions for use are very clear and I'll use the example pages to guide me in knowing what the work might look like. The repetition will serve to firmly reinforce what students are to do so that there is no question on the students' part. Also, the rubric is very explicit so students know what is expected. I like that each page is clearly labeled (for my own purposes) so I know which to use each day. Pardon my 'gush' but I just love this product!! Thank you so so much!!

I was concerned about the level of difficulty for my second graders (might it be too difficult?), but am simply thrilled that I purchased this anyway! It is absolutely perfect and is just what I needed for the writing component I wanted to add to our homework. It is incredibly organized and easy for both the students and parents to understand. I really like how there are so many prompt choices to choose from so teachers can really pick the prompts they know their students will enjoy the most. I could go on, but instead I'll share about an email I got from a parent today! She raved about how much her child loves the writing homework and how the way it is broken down makes it 'easy peazy' for him to do. Thanks for making this great product! Worth every cent!

I started using these last year and as we do each day we hang it up at each students writing spot. My principal loves these. She comes in and reads each students work and see how they progress as they develop a paragraph. Great idea!

Bought this. Loved it. My kids loved it too, and it showed real improvement in my class's writing. So my whole grade level bought licences for it, too! FABULOUS! We have already made plans to use it again next year. It made a big difference starting it halfway through the year; can't wait to see how fabulous it will be starting at the beginning!

Love the heavy scaffold structure, love the fact that, although you can print a page a day for each child, you can also have a weekly task sheet - less paper ! Love the way I can use it to deconstruct writing into summaries, by working backwards - worth every penny !

I've been using these packets now for three weeks and they are really great for my 6th graders! My students need daily structured practice and this is a fantastic resource! I think this is going to be a great supplemental resource to scaffold from weekly 5 sentence paragraphs to 5 paragraph essays. Great Job!

I have been looking for something like this for awhile. I love how it doesn't stay the same throughout the year - how you build rigor but keep the same structure. Changing type of writing and adding in revising are just two of my favorite things about this. Thank you so much! I know my writing program will be so much better now.

Wow, this is wonderful! I am teaching 5th grade Reading and Writing for the first time this year. Previously I taught 4th grade Reading and SS. I love how you sent this home for HW. So, that tells me this is really self explanatory and the students should be able to do by themselves and or with a parent? Do the pages address grammar at all or do you have a separate product for that? Thank you for your time.

Other than a mention on the revision checklist, this does not include any grammar but is mostly about using repetition to get the kids very familiar and comfortable with the structure of a paragraph.

It is designed for the kids to be able to do it on their own but I would definitely do the first few weeks in class with your kids. Mine needed a bit of help at first but quickly got the hang of it :)

I really like your product but before purchasing, I do have a question. I noticed in your download preview you provided a sample answer (this is very helpful). Are sample answers provided for all writing prompts? Thanks!

On  August 3, 2013Teaching in Room 6 answered:
No, sample answers are not provided for all prompts. There is just one that you can use to help teach your students the procedure (for each "level"...so really two) Then it is up to the students what they write.

This will work for any class/student who needs help with the structure of writing a paragraph. If your class just hasn't grasped the basic structure, therefore inhibiting good craft writing, then it would work. The prompts are broad and deep enough for all levels of thinking.

I am thinking about buying this product for my 6th grade class. Now that we are implementing the new ccss we will be doing several research projects throughout the year. I was wondering if this might be too simple for sixth graders?
My thought is, if the kids get the paragraph writing down, the research papers will be that much easier. Once we get going it could be changed to homework. Or, depending on how much time it takes it could be placed in the morning routine. I didn't give you a great question but it is always nice to bounce ideas off of other teacher. Happy teaching!

Hi, I really love your materials. I have a question about the Paragraph writing materials. It looks really good. I teach 3 5th grade classes writing in a Writing Workshop format. Do you think this would be a good resource for mini lessons? I give students homework, as well. Would it be better for homework? Also, is it a good resource for 5th grade? I am really thinking about buying it.

On  April 28, 2013Teaching in Room 6 answered:
I personally use it in my 5th grade class as homework, then to guide my mini lessons. But there are others at my site who use it totally in class. It is pretty universal and flexible.

Hi! Excited to set up POW as a literacy center. Already made my POW! bulletin board :-). I'm wondering if you might be able to make the cover for me minus "A Daily Practice Approach to Paragraph Writing". My idea is to put that page in a frame by the lit cntr and kids probably don't need that descriptive info. Thank you so much for any help you're able to offer. Oh, and I'm assuming I can't make a change to your pdf . . . if I can, just let me know how :-). Thank you soooooo much for this amazing learning opportunity! shelley mann, 4th grade, gulf breeze, FL

Hello,
I have purchased the packet and my kids are really taking to it. I was wondering if there is an editable version available. My schedule currently doesn't allow me to have writing on Wednesdays so they days are mixed up. It gets a little confusing when we are doing Wednesday's activity on Thursday!! If not, my students can adjust I just thought I would check.

I like the idea behind this bundle a lot, but I teach 7th grade-do you think it could be stretched to them if I used it as HW Iike you do?

I have never taught 7th myself, but if your students need repeated practice with the structure of writing a paragraph then I would say yes.

Do you think this could be adaptable for 2nd grade? Are there any CCSS that align with 2nd grade for this product? I am very interested in purchasing this!!
Thanks!

On  January 27, 2013Teaching in Room 6 answered:
It could be adapted to 2nd grade, if you really scaffold in the beginning and set the expectations. Try the free week in the preview and see how that works for your room. If you think it will work, then go for it!

It could match W2.1, W2.3, W2.5,

I am not sure if there is something wrong with the preview or the computer. It is working on my end (and had a few people say that it is working for them) Contact TpT with the Contact Us button. They will be able to help you with the technical issues. They are experts!

Hi! I'm really interested in this writing packet for my group of 3rd grade, self-contained special ed kiddos. I'm working on getting them to write (at all...better...however you wanna put it! ;) ) and really like what I saw in the preview. I know the grade range you have posted is 3-6, but do you think it could work for them? I'm looking for something that's pretty scaffolded that we could use to begin writing (next year in TX they'll have to write a narrative essay for our state assessment). Thanks!!

It s pretty scaffolded and, if you do it with them in class instead of for homework or independent center work at the beginning, it most definitely could work in your class.

I love your work and I know this will be such a great resource for my writing block. Just wanted to ask or let you know - I think there is a mistake on the Tuesday page. As you go through the weeks or topics it repeats the "topic you are good at... and the closing about the descriptive adjective." I hope this is appropriate place to give this comment. I'm relatively new to this and thought this would be better than the ratings page. Thank you again for all your hard work.
