This is a graphic organizer for producing a writing product for Unit 1, Week 5 of Macmillan. Create a large tree map for whole group instruction. Use the format on the worksheet.
Students work with the teacher to write items such as...
What kind of team ...soccer, basketball, firefighters, EVAC, teachers
What will the team do...play a game, put out fires, give medical care, educate students
Why will they work together....score points, protect property, save lives, help students learn to read
Then, they plan out their personal writing selection for team work (football, cheerleading, baseball) and then they add to the organizer. Model personal voice within their story, as well as topic and closing sentence.
