First grade writers need to be able to write opinion pieces (W1.1), informative texts (W.1.2), and narrative accounts of an event (W.1.3). This unit provides easy to use, ready-made activities that will help teach students how to meet these first grade writing goals. The simple templates provide structure and support while giving students opportunities for writing success. After the students complete the templates, they can recopy the entire piece of writing. Students will gain confidence in their own writing as they use these strategies.
Included in this unit are:
45 writing templates
15 prompts, for narrative, opinion and informative writing
12 journal covers, and suggestions for journal writing.
"Happy Thought" Writing Suggestions
“Letter Writing” Suggestions and Template
Get your students started on the road to “writing independence” as you meet the standards for First Grade Writing! This is a unit you’ll use year after year!
