Have you discovered that your students need lots of practice to plan their writing? Do they need a variety of ways to plan? Do you want to make sure planning templates can be differentiated and therefore accessible to all students? After teaching the writing workshop for many years, I’ve learned ways to make the writing process easier and more manageable (for students and teachers). One way is by using planners that are a half page instead of a full page, students feel like the planning process shouldn’t take the entire writing session. Another way is by offering a variety of ways to plan, and by explicitly teaching and modeling each. The writing planners in this resource are the ones I’ve found most successful in classrooms with students in grades 2-4 Be sure to check out my entire writing units that include other tips and detailed lesson plans, all aligned to Common Core standards.
