These writing sheets will help your students write simple but complete paragraphs regarding a topic. I first used these during guided writing.
Then, students were able to build fluency in writing by doing the sheets independently during centers or seat work.
I decided to make differentiated sheets because some of my students didn’t need the separation of each question. They have learned that all questions are important in order to write a complete narrative. I realized that they needed more space to write the story. I included an example of what one of my students wrote (it’s not a published piece).
I still kept the old format for my emergent writers. Those students still need to follow the scaffold format until they are ready.
