Are you interested a single resource that will your kiddos moving from paragraph writing to top-notch expository essays in just 24 weeks? Then here's the product for you!
This packet walks students through the writing process of brainstorming, planning, drafting, revising & editing, and then assessing themselves or their peers using a STAAR-aligned rubric.
The first twelve weeks guide students through this process as they build one "meaty" paragraph per week.
The next twelve weeks use the same process and a very similar format to move them into producing one purposeful essay per week.
The same scaffolding is used to introduce students to an essay prompt format with the same three parts they will see on their state test (read, think, write).
Blank versions of both the paragraph and essay of the week are included for you to write in your own prompts.
Rock the writing this year and give your students the tools for success on the STAAR!
