This curriculum will be all you have to purchase for a complete year of successfully teaching writing. Each lesson builds step by step with success for all. The unique design of each lesson supports struggling writers and allows your top writers to blossom as well. Grammar is taught in the context of real writing.
Each workbook has 12-15 lessons and is designed so that you and parents can easily see how each student is progressing. Don't be fooled by the term "workbook". The lessons are really fun! Teachers who have tried this tell me that writing is the favorite time of day in their classes.
All CCSS for first grade are met. This is also a fantastic product for Special Ed in first or second grade.
Handwriting in these workbooks is taught in D'Nealian, but because the letters are introduced in groups by the way they are formed, there is none of the frustration that people sometimes experience teaching it.
