What is FirstieWriting?
FirstieWriting Curriculum is an engaging, first grade, genre-based writing curriculum. FirstieWriting encourages young learners to look inward at their endless possibilities as a writer. FirstieWriting is based upon six units: Writing With Narrative, Writing With Opinion, Writing With Direction, Writing With Persuasion, Writing With Imagination, and Writing With Information. Each unit is broken down to 30 lessons. The units cover 30 days of academic instruction. The lesson plans have listed unit objectives, “I can” statements, Common Core writing standards and needed mentor texts.
FirstieWriting encourages a daily routine of a minilesson, independent writing, and a share time. Each of the lessons in FirstieWriting are well thought out for the young writer and spiral back to previous lessons to ensure students are retaining their skills. FirstieWriting also includes unit anchor charts, a variety of writing paper, conferring schedules and note sheets, sample writings, student writing goals display, writing rubrics, and step-by-step guides that are made specifically for each unit. Below is a look at the lessons included in the unit.
