Writing: Want build better writers in your class? The WOW vs. BLAH Sentence Writing Packet starts with the basics of good writing - drafting quality detailed sentences.
What makes this approach different you say?? Well, WOW vs. BLAH presents this material in an "out of the box" way that "hooks" kids from the get go. By showing the kids the differences between WOW and BLAH sentences in a silly way, kids tend to grasp and apply the concept more successfully.
This material is perfect for 1st and 2nd grades and could work well in many 3rd grade classrooms as well. It also includes multiple editable templates :)
