This first week of writing for November focuses on CCSS for Writing 1.1. This standard is all about making opinions and supporting them. Students will learn about the lives of Pilgrim boys and girls, and then form an opinion about their lives.The second week will focus on CCSS for Writing 1.2. This standard is about learning information and writing an informational paragraph. Students will learn all about turkeys and then organize an informational paragraph. The third week focuses on CCSS for Writing 1.3, which is writing a narrative or sequence of events. Well, your little kiddos are about to be Thanksgiving dinner and they must find a way to avoid be eaten! They will work this week on organizing a narrative that tells of their harrowing escape. Everything you will need for the writing process for this week is included in this file. The lesson plans, worksheets, activities, writing paper, etc! The only thing you may need is a couple books - the titles are included in this file.
If you have any questions just let me know! Thank you so much!
I plan to create these for every month, just like I did for Second Grade, so that you never have to plan writing again. And...as a bonus...you will meet all of the Common Core Writing Standards with no planning from you!
