I have been anxious to update this packet because of the value or its role in my writing program.
It is developed for the months September to May and uses the special events in each month as a springboard for writing.
Each month begins with an anchor chart with vocabulary and 16 vocabulary cards for posting.
The posters included share the three writing types focused on where they fit in the four key types.
There is also a Steps to Writing poster and Checklists for the students or for assessment.
Student writing begins with sentence and paragraph development.
There are writing pages to focus on opinion, how to/sequencing, and narrative.
And each month ends with informative writing and writing about data.
