Product Description
Elementary/middle school students all over America are now taking the ACT Aspire tests....Yikes! The writing test requires students in grades 3-8 to type their response in 30 minutes (if they don't have accommodations), so it's imperative that pre-writing skills are practiced early and often throughout the year to ensure success.

Using this planner for that practice is a must! It incorporates the necessary elements of expository writing to help your students "sparkle" on the Aspire in a kid-friendly, easy to use, condensed format. Fourth grade students are tested in this mode on the Aspire, so the content and organizational structure is friendly for most students of that age to type in 30 minutes. The I,B,C stands for "introduction, body, and conclusion."

As students learn to use it and memorize their favorite starters and transitions, wean them from the planner as test time approaches. Whether you give the Aspire or not, this planner will help your students use colorful topic sentence starters, transitions, helpful explanatory words, conclusion starters, and reflection starers.
