This notebook file contains interactive essay writing lessons for the whole class. There are lessons regarding introductions, body paragraphs, conclusions, transition words, and supporting statements with facts/details. Many lessons are interactive and allow the students to come up to the board and touch certain parts of the work to make answers “appear.” It allows for student interaction and discussion and is aligned with the 5th grade CCS. Students love coming up to the smartboard and making the work come alive!
I have created a small “demo” of the notebook file free so you can check out one slide first! All you have to do is click where appropriate and you will see the answers appear. This is a perfect opportunity to have class discussions and then call on students to come check answers!
