IDEAS FOR WRITING GRADES 2-5: TEACHING STUDENTS HOW TO GENERATE IDEAS THEY WILL USE PRE-WRITING.
The first step of the writing process is pre-writing. Pre-writing in itself needs to have a foundation laid in order for students to successfully complete pre-writing. If not, you’ll hear students declaring: I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT!
The ideas unit is a two week unit designed to help students brainstorm ideas they are familiar with to help them later when they need to write.
