So excited about this product and think it will provide YOU a chance to really improve your student's writing. It is leveled to provide experiences that are challenging for EVERY student in your classroom.
The packet begins with lots of teacher information.
There is a September calendar.
CCSS are identified that will be focused on for the month.
Lesson Plans are included for each topic.
The teacher lesson plans include detailed information on introducing the lesson, literature for engaging students, and samples to share with students so that by the time they enter the workbook they have ideas and skills to focus on!
Each month the workbook will provide 4 practice lessons.
Back to School
The workbook will include 3 or 4 leveled graphic organizers, and then "sloppy copy" for the first write. These include editing information with a student check list and teacher check list.
It is suggested that Level One students move right to the writing journal.
Their activities are very guided where Level Two and Three increases in difficulty and opportunity for extended writing.
This is a closer look at some of the organizers provided in the Johnny Appleseed section.
Notice the differentiation.
After gathering their ideas and editing their first write students will go to their Journal.
They will do a final copy for publishing. Again notice the levels pages. Note: not shown here but the packet includes another lined page for those needing more space.
Shown here is the class cover to create a class book if you wish.
You can keep the journals and return them at the end of the year OR you can send them home monthly.
Each lesson includes a skill as well.
Lesson One...Summer Vacation...Punctuation
Lesson Two...Back to School...Connecting word AND
Lesson Three...My Family...Pronouns
Lesson Four...Johnny Appleseed...Adjectives
