I created this document to help with the beginning writing process. We took it very slow and completed the writing map whole group as I modeled how it should look (it was projected on the board.)The next day, we went step by step and created a sentence for each block. I modeled the actual writing on chart paper. After a few times of this process, the students were given their own copy to complete with me. We then created the sentences one by one, writing each one down on handwriting paper. As they became familiar with the process, they were eager to begin writing on their own. Sometimes I gave the topic, other times they could come up with their own topic. For the conclusion, I found it helpful to call it the end feeling. I hope this is useful to you!
