Hi I see that you use storytown. I am going to be starting it this year with my homeschool kiddos. Do you have your first grade lesson plan for sale? I would love to see how other teachers are using the program.

Hi Lisa! I was hoping you would create the Harcourt Story Town Writing Lessons for First Grade Lessons 21-30 and post on this site. My students love using them each day and we are getting close to lesson 21. We would love to have the entire set to complete the school year. I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks!

You have Harcourt Story Town Writing Lessons 1-10 First Grade but on the front cover of the product it says 1-30. I do believe I thought it was 1-30. You may want to change the front cover of the product. Please let me know if you do the others. I would love to purchase the rest.

I apologize! I tried to upload the whole thing but at the time it was too big or wouldn't upload. In the title I stated it as Lessons 1-10. I am working on 11-20 and 21-30, and they will be posted shortly.

I based it off of my first grade story town writing lessons from my teachers edition, but I am sure you could work on it with your kinder kids. I pull it up on my smartboard as well as have them use the weekly packets and we work on them together. You can make it into individual writing or whole group since you are working with younger kids, but with this, my students don't complain about having to do writing anymore because a lot of it allows them to illustrate pictures for their writing!! Hope this helps!!
