Help students boost their written communication skills with the Getting to the Core of Writing workbook series! This series is designed to fulfill two objectives: to help writing become an essential part of literacy development and to provide teachers with a clear way to support the Common Core State Standards for writing.
Focusing on the traits of quality writing: ideas, sentence fluency, organization, word choice, voice, and conventions, 7-12 lessons on each trait connect with students through a variety of writing assignments, graphic organizer helps, and reading connections. Weekly lessons are broken down into multiple stages, including a mini-lesson, Writing Practice Time, and Sharing Time. Each lesson includes a standard, materials needed, 'mentor texts,' procedure notes, teaching instructions with semi-scripted questions, assignments, homework ideas, and reproducibles.
This Grade 2 text covers topics such as getting ideas from literature, writing about personal topics (important places, important people, etc.), sentence variety, poetry, narrative text, writing letters, using senses, adjectives, editing, and more.
272 reproducible pages, softcover. A Teacher's CD-ROM with reproducible resources and student activity pages is included. This course covers a full year; a suggested pacing guide is included. 2nd Grade.
Homeschoolers should be aware that this book suggests readings from an extensive (7-page) booklist of titles.
