This Ultimate Interactive Writer's Notebook is perfect for organizing and energizing your writing instruction! Perfect for grades 1 and 2.

This is JUST like the Ultimate Interactive Writer's Notebook for Grades 3-5. All topics covered are the same- the wording and student tasks are geared for younger students!

Using a standard sized composition book, students glue in "Teach Me" charts about each topic and then practice each skill with some sort of interactive flap book or other organizer called "My Turn!" pages. Clear directions make this a snap for young writers! Don't want to put the "Teach Me" charts in the notebook? Use them as guides for creating anchor charts in your classroom!

This pack has over 100 pages and topics include...
*General writing grammar/conventions like... capital letters, end marks, sentences and fragments, types of sentences, nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, commas in a series... a NEW grammar add-on pack is also available! It contains SEVENTEEN NEW skills!

*Opinion writing... facts, opinions, reasons and examples, organizing opinion writing

*Informational and How-to writing... organizing writing, using appropriate vocabulary, facts and details, writing a sequence, using transition words

*Narrative writing... personal vs. fictional, organizing a story, using narrative writing tools like simile, metaphor, ellipses, alliteration

**Updated- 10/24/14 with a letter writing mini-add on pack!**

AND MORE! Everything you need for your year of writing instruction!

Please check out the preview to see what's included in each group as well as a few pictures of the notebook in action- please note that the actual photographs of the notebook in use in the preview come from my students' 3rd grade notebooks. Since I don't have access to 1st or 2nd graders, I have used the pics from my 3rd graders' notebooks to show the possibilities!

Check out the 3rd-5th grade version HERE. The content is the same, which has the potential for some great differentiation! The "Teach me" and "My turn" pages are just appropriately leveled for older writers.
