It’s quite difficult to teaching first graders to write. This rubric is designed to help first graders write an informative/expository paragraph. The finished product should consist of four sentences including an introduction, two facts, and a conclusion. Of course an assignment like this would require plenty of teacher modeling (see my store for the Informative Paragraph Template for help with this). This digital download is also designed to be a handy tool for grading and assessing student work.
