Product Description
Hooked On Writing is a year long comprehensive writing program designed to hook your young writers into not only loving the craft of writing but learning important skills that will help them to express their ideas and communicate effectively.

I have included 2nd grade standards. Most of these lessons begin with a 2nd grade standard and scaffold into 3rd grade standards. You will find this program to be rigorous, yet engaging to students and interesting to teach. It is very systematic and it builds from one lesson to another so that students fully understand each skill yet can be used as a separate unit.

Hooked on Writing is available as a BUNDLE. Click here ==>

Hooked on Writing YEAR LONG BUNDLE

Many teachers have told me they just don't know where to start when teaching writing. It can surely be overwhelming! I decided to put together a writing program with strategies and skill sets that I have used, developed and improved upon for many years. Accompanied by highly engaging and effective children's literature, you will have 5 detailed lessons a week and 4 children's books.

Each set is aligned with 2nd and 3rd grade CCSS and the Write Traits but is suitable for most learning outcomes including Canadian (BC and Ontario) ones. (Many 4th grade teachers might find this applicable for their classrooms too with some adaptations.) Each month focuses on a different type of writing like fiction, opinion writing etc. and is matched with a writing trait such as word choice or organization. Because writing is very much rooted in speaking, listening, and reading, all of these skills are in this set. There are writing strategies that involve student collaboration, oral language development, technology, and presentation. I always like to say, "Writing doesn't always involve a pencil."


The first Hooked on Writing set (August) is unique to the set. It is set up a bit differently so that you can easily pre-assess your students and then get on to the business of engaging your writers to enjoy a year of writing. The rest of the sets will build upon each other starting with sentence writing and moving into organization and word choice and then paragraph writing etc.. You can use one set after another or you may choose to use one set to teach a specific skill set.

Here is a visual overview that will guide you through the program so you know what to expect and what skills will be covered.
