This is my ALL-IN-ONE writing tool that incorporates all of the writing standards into one resource for grades 4-6. It combines interactive notebook work, while also incorporating authentic writing.
I realized that while word work and writing take place consistently in my classroom, I needed a writing tool that was easy to implement as well as also would help me make sure all of the writing standards were covered. This is the rationale for why I created this resource! I want to send successful readers and writers on to the next grade.
Included in this resource are the following writing units:
• Argument/Opinion Writing Unit
• Informative/Explanatory Writing Unit
• Narrative Writing Unit
• Editing and Revising Work
• Technology and Writing Work
• Research Writing Unit
In addition, there are additional topics for students, so the writing can be spiraled during the course of the year!
• Share CCSS with students. I post these in the form of “I Can…” statements so that the learning is clear to students and have it visible on my front whiteboard.
• Use Mini-Lesson.
• Brainstorm and draft a sample with students. This does not have to be a complete example, but I find that the more detailed I am, the better ALL of my students will write.
• Model the writing process.
• Pull into small groups based on need for more instruction.
• Peer and teacher edit.
Accomplish all of your writing during the course of the year with this product!
