This packet was created with a "SCIENCE THEME," but is open-ended so that you may use it to have your students write about any science topic.
This resource contains 15 printable pages of thematic materials to use in your K-5 classrooms.
There are 4 full color printables to be used as class book covers or as titles on your bulletin boards when displaying the student writing.
I carefully design each of my writing kits to include differentiated versions of my webs, draft paper and final copy pages to make it easy for you to modify within your current class and to be timeless enough to use if you change grade levels.
My goal is to create resources that save teachers time and money. I make them affordable and easy to prepare. I also strive to make the kits visually appealing, yet design them to look good when copied in black and white because I know printer ink is expensive.
This 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)
4 color printables
These four color printables were designed to be used as covers for class books or as titles for bulletin boards. I like to display the student work as a bulletin board and then turn it into a class book when I take it down by sliding their writing into page protectors and putting them into a binder with the printable on the cover. At the end of the year, I remove all of the pages and send them home with the authors.
