Product Description
Hooked on Writing: This unit is all about Personal Narratives and Sentence Fluency. The writing "how to" resource you've been waiting for! As teachers we want to "hook" our students into loving the craft of writing. We want them to be engaged, motivated and successful. This writing series will take you through the elements of a great writing program step by step.

This program is suitable for anyone teaching using the Write Traits and/or CCSS and has alternate spelling as well.

Hooked on Writing is not a unit full of writing prompts. It is a detailed and comprehensive curriculum with opportunities for choice, collaboration, and offers a growth mindset for writers.

This writing curriculum is also perfect for Canadian students with alternative spelling included in each unit.
