So, you need that writing project to meet the new Common Core Standards? Never fear. Here they are. Six developed writing projects that are aligned to the new Common Core National Standards. They are the writing projects that I’ve developed over the last 18 years of teaching elementary school in California.
***Here is your writing program all set and ready to implement from the beginning of school through the month of September!
I served on a Writing Development committee for my district developing writing units to help meet the Common Core before they were adopted. I’ve been trained in several different writing strategies such as 6-Traits and Writer’s Workshop. I’ve taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade over 18 years. I started teaching during Whole Language, watched things transition to Standards teaching, and now I’m watching the pendulum swing back to Common Core.
***All lessons are in the Five Step Lesson format with grading rubrics and needed graphic organizers for each lesson. Lessons include the introductory to writing process, paragraph parts, opinion paragraphs, and a final Book Review 3 paragraph essay. With this PDF book, you'll get all your students on the track for Common Core. It is the first 6 weeks of school to start your own writing program.
***Sentence Frames included in lessons for ELD Support.
***Written to fit a workshop teaching format to differentiate instruction for Gifted and Talented.
So, sit back, relax, and feel confident that you hold in your hand a start to a writing program for your classroom. You’ve got it under control. Breath deep. It will be OK. You got this.
Have a fabulous school year!
