Do you struggle with teaching writing or want an easy-to-use guide that makes teaching writing the best part of the day? Here is everything you need for the ENTIRE year to teach writing to your 1st graders! As we all know, teaching writing is much different (and more difficult) than assigning writing. Teaching writing is much more than giving your 1st graders a writing prompt! If you want to see true growth in your students' writing and become more effective at teaching writing, this may be what you are looking for. This product contains detailed plans and materials that will help you to understand the HOW and WHY of teaching writing to young children.
Included for each unit is information on mini-lessons, many detailed mini-lesson with explicit teacher language, writer's workshop structure and lesson planning, gradual release of responsibility, management forms, graphic organizers and templates, author's chair and importance of sharing, mentor text lists for each unit, scaffold support through the use of paper selection, elements of each genre, and much, much more!
