This first grade common core writing curriculum includes everything you will need to teach your daily writing lessons. I have included step-by-step instructions, all templates, reference sheets, and writing samples within this unit.
This download covers Unit 8: Weeks 26 – 28 and is aligned with the Common Core Writing Standards.
Week 26 demonstrates another strategy for learning about narrative writing. Students sequence cards to create a story. After looking over the cards, students sequence the scenes on the cards, choose transitional words for each event, and write a story based on the cards.
Expanding sentences is another activity included in this week’s instruction. Using sentence strips, students write phrases that include descriptive language such as adjectives, adverbs, and prepositional phrases.
Weeks 27 and 28 are spent writing stories, building details, and reviewing parts of speech. Write this week’s story on the computer and make a book complete with illustrations. After your students have ‘published’ their work, invite another class to enjoy your writers’ stories. Have an ‘Author’s Tea’ or and ‘Evening with the Author’ to celebrate your students’ writing with their parents.
Each week in this unit includes:
1. An overview of the weeks plan and objective
2. Five writing lessons
3. A spelling activity
4. A grammar or conventions activity
5. All templates needed for the weeks writing activities
6. Instruction or reference sheets covering various topics
