Included in this 36 page download are resources for apple themed writing. There are two sets of differentiated worksheets for each of the three types of first grade writing (opinion, informational, and narrative). Students will move through six different stages of writing with this tool--brainstorming, drafting, editing, revising, conferencing and publishing. In my classroom, I keep writing like this in a portfolio to progress monitor my students as they are achieving their writing goals. They store easily in a regular 8 x 11 file folder!
