This Newly revised combination No Prep PowerPoint and printables unit is ready to open and teach. The PowerPoint will take struggling writers through each step of writing a good informational paragraph. The printables correlate exactly to the PowerPoint. The Power point will teach how to look for general details and specific details. Then how to take key word notes and transform them into sentences. Then it will finally teach how to write a topic sentence and concluding sentence. In the printable package you will find:
-Graphic Organizers for each step are included
- 5 different Arctic animals reading passages
- vocabulary activity for each article
-An editing checklist
- Scoring rubric
- Common Core Standards for grade 2-4.
I have used this method with many struggling writers and it works. There is enough in this pack to take you through an entire month and meet the Common core standards. Please note that this a essentially the same product as the Winter Informational Writing Paragraph of the week except this product is meant for older struggling writers and the other is meant for younger writers who are just learning how to write paragraphs.Do not buy both products.
