This 98 page pack is a style of teaching writing I have implemented successfully for 3 years. I hope this method is as successful for you as it is for me. It is aligned with Write from the Beginning (WFTB), Thinking Maps, and the Pearson Reading Street Series.
Before you get started you will want to Formally assess your students ability to write the FIRST week of school. This way you have a base for comparison in the coming months.
Within this pack you will begin teaching your students to write using MODELING, PLANNING, EDITING & REVISING, and ILLUSTRATION.
We begin by giving students images and Thinking Maps so that they learn how to describe, sequence, and plan their writing appropriately. Then the structure changes. End Goal: You will begin to incorporate a 5 Day writing program that begins with a teacher model, student planning, student writing, student editing & revising, and finally student illustration.
Everything you need is in this pack! Observational Comment, Expository, Narrative writing prompts, rubrics, thinking maps, and a foundation built in that will support your students; growth in writing!
