The CCSS state that first graders should "write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure." Let's celebrate what kids know about Lincoln and Washington! This product contains everything you need for a writing center. Included in the package are topic sentence cards to use for sorting the facts about the two Presidents, fact cards to sort, stationery to record writing, and a reference card for transition words. You may want to make several copies of the fact cards so several students can work at a time. Or, have students work in pairs-they love that, right? This President pack is appropriate for 1st and 2nd and homeschoolers. This unit was created by Deana. Visit me at email@example.com! I would appreciate your feedback!
