PUMPKINS: A Writing Project Resource Kit Differentiated for Grades K-5
This kit was created to be used by teachers in grades K-5 and as such includes a variety of graphic organizers and writing page templates. The materials were designed to make modifications easy within your classroom because we all have students at very different levels.
The pages are open-ended and versatile enough to use as a research project, non-fiction, informational text reader response, or for creative writing. There is a lot of choice and variety. The packet includes:
-printables to make a color or black and white schema chart to anchor learning
-3 graphic organizers for researching / planning
-3 graphic organizers for webbing writing
-2 different draft pages (primary- and intermediate-ruled)
-12 choices of final copy paper (including 6 color and 6 black and white)
-5 options for publishing (class book cover, 3 individual student book/report covers, and a sign for an easy bulletin board)
These can be used independently by older learners or cooperatively with younger learners. There are cloze/illustrating pages for our littlest learners.
Be sure to check out all of my other writing packets. I have lots to choose from.
