The Fairfax County Public School System in Virginia has new PLANNING and PACING guides for the 2017 - 2018 school year. The first unit in language arts is titled, "Building a Community of Readers and Writers". I have developed these checklists using the NEW planning and pacing guide for 5th grade, Fairfax County and VDOE rubrics, and Virginia ELA SOLs, but I think the lesson could be adapted for 4th and 6th grades.
These checklists could be distributed to students during the process of writing an could guide small group instruction. Students DRAFT, REVISE, EDIT, and PUBLISH one piece during this unit. There are three checklists - one for narrative, one for opinion, and one for informational writing.
These checklists may be copied and distributed by one teacher for his/her students. If you like these checklists, please purchase licences to share or send you colleagues to my TpT store!
Lesson aligned with and inspired by:
* FCPS ELA Planning and Pacing Guide – 5th Grade; Unit 1
* Virginia Standards of Learning
Communication 5.1 and Writing 5.7
