4th grade STAAR Writing Plan 35 week timeline
This plan includes written composition teaching sequence, grammar lesson sequence, word smith sequence and suggested mentor texts.
This timeline incorporates all you need to prepare your 4th grade students for the Writing STAAR. There is a sequence of lesson ideas to prepare your students for the written composition, grammar lesson sequence and suggested mentor texts, along with a sequence for teaching grammar rules and homophones.
This timeline is designed for one hour of implementation each school day.
10 minutes for Word Smiths (study one word a day)
20 minutes for grammar lessons
30 minutes for written composition
If you have some gaps in your teaching bag of tricks I suggest looking at:
