* Open-ended student outline for pre-planning. Students are guided step-by-step from brainstorming ideas to a completed first draft.
* 5 different versions of writing paper for the final draft
* Word lists of verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and transition words and phrases to help young writers improve their writing through word choice. These are a great addition to students' writing folders.
As students write paragraphs regularly, their skills improve quickly and provide a basis for writing longer narratives, opinion pieces, and information passages. Teaching strategies for composing paragraphs will prepare students for writing assessments required by many states in grades 4-6.
These materials support Common Core standards for writing in grades 2, 3, and 4.
