This bundle includes short lessons that can be done in small groups during writing to compliment ANY program, including TC/Lucy Calkins. These are NOT part of the units of study-I created them myself. I developed these lessons according to the most common needs of students where grammar, craft, and punctuation are concerned.They say grade 3 on top but you can change that, as well as modify the lessons. All lessons are general in context, and therefore can be used throughout all units of study or genres of writing. It is up to you to bring student work samples to the group as needed to enhance instruction. Each lesson has an aim, teaching point, standard, rationale, materials list, and procedural steps. There is also a chart to record students’ names and notes on the bottom of each lesson. Keep in mind, these are quick mini lessons that were created for small group instruction, but you can revise and edit them to transform them into whole class lessons if you want to. The following lessons are included: Using a thesaurus, adding periods, capitalizing the word I, Using an aportrophe to form possessives, using commas correctly, using past tense verbs so writing makes sense, capitalizing proper nouns, using a dictionary to help edit spelling, cutting and pasting to add more detail, using general vs. specific details, and adding transitional/linking words/phrases.
