Common Core Writing Bundle: Four Monthly Common Core Connections packets ~ Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall
Students will make connections with each month’s traditions, special days, weather, classroom happenings, and more as they practice three types of Common Core writing:
Informative/Explanatory ~ At the beginning of the month, students can write to tell and explain about the month.
Opinion ~ In the middle of the month, students can write to tell what they like best about the month and explain why.
Narrative ~ At the end of the month, students can write a narrative to tell about some of the things they learned and did in school for that month.
**Since most schools are out for the summer, I have included extra narrative writing pages in the summer packet WITHOUT references to school. These writing assignments would be great for students to work on at home when school is out during the summer months. Students can continue to practice informative, opinion, and narrative writing all summer long to keep their skills sharp!
These projects are a great way to keep your students engaged and to show growth throughout the school year!
Included in each packet are:
~a bulletin board header for each month
~blackline monthly cover pages and an all-year cover page
~brainstorming graphic organizers for each month
~prewriting graphic organizers for each month
~various publishing pages with different line styles ~ with and without seasonal clip art for each month
~examples for each type of writing and example organizers for September
~holistic grading rubric
