3 Months-Scaffolded Writing-5 Paragraph Essays (Tri. 1) incl. Primary Sources
Product Description
This is an AMAZING product that The Packet Lady has tested on her students for years, and believe me, IT WORKS! By the end of the year, your kids will be writing beautiful, well-developed and well-structured 5 paragraph essays. This packet includes 3 months worth of weekly SCAFFOLDED writing assignments wherein new skills are introduced monthly! Students will mostly analyze primary source documents from U.S. History and formulate opinions, develop arguments, compare and contrast, observe, summarize, etc. Topics in this packet include "What I Did Over My Summer Vacation, "Explorers," and "Chief Tecumseh's Famous Speech." ALL COMMON CORE WRITING STANDARDS FOR GRADE 5 ARE COVERED!! Rubrics for students and teachers are included. Also, I've attached an invaluable set of "Essay Organization Papers" that can be copied as a packet or mounted on tri-fold boards for easy reference. This program makes a great end-of-the-year portfolio for Open House! The best part about this program is that it is so EASY! All you have to do is copy the colorful monthly packets, and you're ready to go! Be sure to check out my other trimester and full year writing programs (at my store)! Enjoy!
