Expository Writing for Grades 4-6

I am constantly trying to create or find the perfect writing resources for students that struggle with organizing writing. It seems like it should be a simple concept to teach students to write about something they know how to do, but at times it is easier said than done. Here is a resource that I hope you can use with your enthusiastic and struggling writers.

• Use the following pages to enhance your students’ understanding of expository writing.

• Print out any of the tools in this resource and/or utilize the Google slides link for student work.

• Prepare students to write their own expository piece.

• Ideas and Directions for Use
• Expository Writing Inspiration
