* I developed these lessons over 8 years of teaching writing in a multi-age K-2 classroom. These lessons have been field-tested and found to be engaging for students of various backgrounds.
* The lessons incorporate the Writing Workshop format. Each lesson consists of a ‘Connection’ which introduces the day’s lesson, the ‘Teach’ portion that features a mentor text, an ‘Active Engagement’ part which provides an opportunity to discuss what has been taught and share ideas for writing, a ‘Link’ when students are reminded of what they learned and are to practice, ‘SSW’ time (Silent Sustained Writing) during which teachers conference with students, a ‘Share’ portion where great work is featured, and an ‘Edit’ portion during which students revisit their work and collaborate to improve it. (Note: Editing doesn’t begin right away.)
* Everything you need to teach is included — just add the featured mentor text and paper!
* 92 days worth of writing instruction are included, PLUS 57 pages of FREE graphic organizers to use with the lessons, PLUS a FREE Editing Booklet (also sold individually on TpT)
