WRITING LESSONS COVER:


Week 5: Illustrate & Write About a Picture: Edible vs. Non-Edible

This week is the beginning of grouping details into main ideas. Using the science topic of edible and non-edible plants, students focus on grouping the pictures into different concepts. Students will create color-coded cards indicating the topics, main ideas, and categories of items. After sorting the cards, your students will then staple them together to form a book.

• Science Concepts: Edible vs. Non-Edible Plants

• Spelling Lesson: Beginning Sounds


Week 6: To Focus on a Topic

During week 6 writers will begin working with more than one main idea. We will learn about the characteristics and needs of living things. We will continue with the color-coding of the topic and main ideas during our planning sessions that we began last week. This week we will also work with the brainstorming chart and the graphic organizer.

• Science Concepts: Characteristics and Needs of Living Things

• Convention Lesson: Sentence Capitalization

• Spelling Lesson: Beginning Sounds

• Templates Included:
→ Brainstorming chart

Weeks 7 - 8: To Group Ideas/Details Together to Create Main Ideas

During weeks 7 and 8 we will model grouping details into main ideas and then writing about them. After reading books and information about the concept of living things and non-living things, students write about the information they have gathered. These lessons include cutting, pasting, and gluing to brainstorm ideas. Students will write small units of information each day. By slowly adding on to the writing and focusing on one aspect of the writing at a time, writers produce a more developed and elaborated piece of writing.

• Science Concepts: To Compare Living and Non-Living Things

• Convention Lesson: Sentence Capitalization, Subjects and Predicates, Nouns

• Spelling Lesson: Counting Sounds
