I am constantly trying to create or find the perfect 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 struggling writers.

About a week ago my son won the third grade crayfish lottery at school, and he came home with a crayfish. We had a simple note about what we needed to bring this critter home, but needed to do a bit of research to learn as much as we could to keep her alive. We did a Google search to find out what to feed her, what size tank she would need, and how to make sure she was most comfortable. Through our research and new crayfish experience, we have learned something we didn’t know how to do before, which made me consider my students…what experiences can our students share that they have learned to do? With some reflecting, brainstorming, and discussion, you can turn student knowledge into a fun writing exercise.
Directions:
1. Use the following pages to enhance your students understanding of expository writing.
2. Print out all of the pages or use for student note-taking.
3. Prepare students to write their own expository piece.
