This is by far one of the best resources I have made for my classroom!
This product is a 5 day student led guide that will improve student writing using Scott Foresman's Sleuth stories. (This product can also be used with other reading materials).
This product is great for whole class work, small teacher instruction, literacy centers, workstations, small group work, partner work, or independent work.
** This is a GREAT way to prepare your students for writing on STANDARDIZED TESTS!
In this product students spend Day 1 and Day 2 exploring the text, asking questions, building an opinion, and gathering evidence from the text.
On Day 3 students take the information they gathered and (using a graphic organizer) support their evidence with reasons

On Day 5 students use "Writing with Colors" to highlite their own writing to check for key parts. Students use a checklist and score themselves!

5 daily guided activities
checklist for student assessment
writing with colors directions
